Myhealth–developing accessible health materials with men with intellectual disability: a co-created proof of concept
AbstractThis paper describes the development of user focussed health materials for men, in the form of a tactile set of health post cards and a digital web-based platform- Myhealth. Health experts with Intellectual Disability (ID) co-created Myhealth over the two phases of work reported in the paper. Men with ID experience more health concerns when compared with the non-disabled population and themselves require user sensitive health promotion materials to effectively access health provision. Following the successful co-creation of Men’s health postcards, Co-creation also underpinned the method adopted to create the digital version of Myhealth. Through a series of prototyping workshops, we co-created the content, key health messages and navigation of information for a web-based version. Human centred engagement with this able, but marginalized group of men enabled the production of user accessible health materials relevant for all men.
