PERSONA

Through user interview, we found if a patient is positive and they have also experienced a tough transition period  when they’re firstly diagnosed. But if they felt negative emotion during this period. Some of patients might fall into the vicious cycle.  


It inspires us that we may learn from the first type of patients and transfer the second type of patients’ journey to the positive one.
