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.
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.
