For nearly 3 decades Livingstone Medical has been studying the impact that health literacy has on

consumer behaviour -  and the role that design has on delivering health information

This research originally began here in the UK in association with  Medical  Science Research

and led directly to the creation of our 'Diseases Explained ' health information series

created specifically for patients and consumers.

  This research continued  in the US  with Case Western University's Department of Family Practice

and a reference book based on the same series was published by Lexi-Comp Inc.,

'A Patient's Guide to Diseases and Disorders' (US, 2003)

The entire series was  also approved at this time by the  AAFPF

( American Academy of Family Physician's Foundation)

In the UK, this research formed the basis for Coventry University's

new 'MA in Health Communication Design' for the launch of the

Health Design & Technology Institute (HDTI) in 2006

In 2013 it was certified by the Royal Society for Public Health as part of

the Department of Health's own 'Information Standard'

and endorsed by the Family Doctor Association

The company also provided training support services to healthcare organisations across the UK

including the NHS,  Patient Support Groups,  Pharmaceutical Manufacturers,

Health Communication Agencies and Medical Publishers
