PhD Thesis: Toward inclusive pharmaceutical packaging

01 May 2018

Pharmaceutical packaging has an increasing importance in aging societies. Previous research shows that pharmaceutical packaging is a source of uncertainties, confusion, and daily struggles. The challenges experienced by users are extensive; the pharmaceutical industry needs to respond with packaging innovation. To address these complex challenges, more research is necessary on packaging that fulfills user needs and capabilities.
The purpose of this research is to investigate innovation and design processes for pharmaceutical packaging, as well as to stimulate the uptake of inclusive design toward pharmaceutical packaging that meets society’s needs (Lund University Publications, 24 April 2018).
