What if you could step into the shoes of someone living with a chronic illness? Would that experience help you to deliver better outcomes for patients? Studio Health was integral to the design and development of award-winning digital immersive learning tool ‘In Their Shoes’, working with The Method and Takeda Pharmaceuticals. Following its successful roll-out, we were asked to evaluate the programme. Working in partnership with University of Westminster we delivered a multi-country, mixed methods research project. The results speak for themselves. This ground-breaking, innovative intervention changes understanding and increases empathy. The results speak for patients too – raising awareness of the realities of living with a life-changing, chronic condition.
Our study has just been published in ‘Frontiers’, one of the world’s top journals.
