Recent PDA alumni, Leah Walker, joined us this week to present on her adventures as a nursing student. Leah shared with us her observations and insightful comments on the facility she is training in, from a user’s perspective. We find gaining knowledge of the user’s needs and perceptions of what works and what does not, helps us improve our approach to providing the best solutions for our healthcare clients.
