Prescribing in intensive care is a complex process involving a number of disciplines working in a highly stressful clinical environment. Within the National Health Service this process is generally written down manually. Errors are made each year as a consequence of illegible or incorrect prescriptions. This research investigates engaging users from multi-disciplines in the design process to result in a system that is usable and demonstrates a reduction in prescribing errors.
