Negotiating Neutrality: Designing a Responsive Video to Support Fertility Preservation Decision-making by Cancer-diagnosed Young Female Patients

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper explores how novel possibilities for personalisation and interactivity in video media, posed by developments in respon- sive video technology, can be applied to support patients as they make complex decisions about their health and care. We present the stakeholder-centred design of Exploring Your Options, a narrative- based responsive video developed to support young female patients in understanding and negotiating the fertility preservation options available to them following a cancer diagnosis. By reflecting on findings resulting from the process of designing and analysing Ex- ploring Your Options with the involvement of cancer-experienced young people, health professionals and related stakeholders, we reveal opportunities for designing health information videos lever- aging personalisation and interactivity to meet both informational and emotional support needs of patients, and highlight insights and considerations that can guide designers seeking to leverage these opportunities in ways that are sensitive and appropriate to the demands of complex healthcare contexts.
