Mobilization against malignant melanoma
|Coordinator||NETDOKTOR.SE AB - Bonnier Healthcare Sweden|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 743 050|
|Project duration||November 2018 - September 2019|
Purpose and goal
Malignant melanoma in the skin, together with other skin cancers, is the cancer disease that is increasing the most in Sweden. It causes the death of 500 persons each year, even though the majority if the cases would be preventable. The aim of the project has been to establish a vision and a form of collaboration that mobilized actors against malignant melanoma in a new way.
Expected results and effects
We have set a vision and interim goals for the project. We have a collaborative form for the project group consisting of representatives from four private actors and have established a dialogue with a couple of public actors with high relevance for the project. We have a plan for the business for two years to come and a set frameworks for the evaluation of the project in the form of a research project.
Planned approach and implementation
The group of project partners has met on eight occasions and between the occasions we have had meetings in smaller working committees as well as continuous contact via Slack channel and e-mails. We have used a variant of Design Thinking with support from News Next, the innovation unit of Bonnier News. We have worked with four phases (Discover-Define-Design-Deliver) and have used four of the meetings to delve into these phases. The process has yielded results by creating a common starting point for project partners and opening up for new ideas which led to our updated vision.
