Abstract

Successful IT isn't just about the computer: it's about integrating the Programs, the People, the Protocols, the Paper - and in medicine, the Patients and the Practitioners. (Hence 'P' soup.)

So what makes a program really user-friendly?

We will be exploring the psychology behind the usage of words, screen layout, images and instructions, all of which help or hinder users’ interaction with computer systems.

Photo Dr John Lockley is a recently retired GP with a lifetime's interest and experience in medical software, its design and its use. He is also Chair of the Society of Medical Writers, a discipline playing a large part in the development of user-friendliness.
