Mistakes in medicine intake is common among older patients in Hong Kong. Some may lead to fatalities, particularly for older patients who live alone. These elderly patients have to struggle with the small print and poor information design often found on medicine labels.
The aim of the project is to decrease the number of errors related to medicine intake and to enhance active ageing in the local community through effective information design.
