Livingstone Medical
has been studying the relationship between consumer behaviour and patient compliance for over
 three decades  - and 
incorporating the results of this research into their health communication projects.

 
In 2007 this research formed the basis for Coventry University's MA in Health Communication Design  
 
and was later expanded to include the impact of newly emerging digital media upon health literacy.

In 1996 the company first created the consumer health series Diseases Explained which has now been published
 in over 40 countries around the world - and in almost as many languages   
 

    
 
This work was been endorsed in the US by the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation 
                    and
Case Western Teaching Hospital's Department of Family Practice -  and in the UK by the
 Health Design & Technology Institute 
and the 
Department of Health's Information Standard .
                     

Founder, Ian Wood, has lectured on many aspects of Health Information Design and delivers workplace
 training sessions on the subject around the UK. In 2003 he edited and published the US consumer reference book
 'A Patient Guide To Diseases & Conditions'
