Selected Projects / Pacific Autism Family Network 2017/18: A Web-platform to Increase Uptake of Research by Families

Since 2015 we have been collaborating with the Pacific Autism Family Network (PAFN) to gain a better understanding of the communication challenges and needs of researchers and families in the autism community.

Through our collaboration in 2016/17 we learned that access to reliable and credible research for families is a significant challenge. To improve knowledge exchange, researchers, and families identified the need for a web-platform that will curate credible autism research for families and disseminate it through more diversified and accessible communication modes.

To address this need, in 2017/2018 the Health Design Lab is working with the autism community, locally and in Prince George, to co-design a web-platform.
