As client consultants for Bispebjerg Hospital, the objective was to create a setting in which employees are proud to work and where patients can find peace of mind in relation to their hospitalisation and treatment. We used the “design dialogue” programme in the user-involvement process, which gives all stakeholders in-depth understanding and insight into the task, including a crucial feeling of co-ownership.
