Abstract

Challenges and trends, such as person-centred care, demographic shifts and technological advancements, are transforming oral health systems. Inclusive design and human-centred design are disciplines highly relevant and potentially instrumental to these oral healthcare transformations. This paper provides an overview of the definitions and characteristics of inclusive and human-centred design which centre on understanding people's multifaceted needs, expectations, behaviours and relationships, and engaging with diverse and often excluded populations. Design's broad capabilities are outlined across outcome and contribution types and the potential role of inclusive and human-centred design to oral health is explored by outlining its relevance to key transformational, societal and technological shifts. Finally, barriers and drivers to the adoption of inclusive and human-centred design in oral health are discussed around three themes: awareness and understanding of the role and value of design; disciplinary differences; and the wider healthcare systems context.
