Ms. Maytal Perlman
BKI (Bachelor of Knowledge Integration, Speech Communication Minor, Collaborative Design Specialization)
Maytal recently graduated from the Knowledge Integration program at the University of Waterloo. She believes the ethos of human-centred design is acutely relevant to healthcare, and when paired with rich scientific knowledge, it can be leveraged to increase the impact of research on health, care and wellbeing. Maytal is interested in exploring how design and collaboration practices can be used to improve patient care and healthcare outcomes. She is particularly interested in applying the principles of behavioural economics to increase the uptake of evidence in clinical decision-making. Maytal’s academic interests are varied, and include philosophy of science, health sciences, collaborative design, and drama & speech communication.
