Niculaescu, C-E, Sassoon, IK, Landa-Avila, IC, Colak, O, Jun, GT, Balatsoukas, P (Accepted for publication) Why “one size fits all” is not enough when designing COVID-19 immunity certificates for domestic use: a UK wide cross-sectional online survey, AbstractObjectivesThe present study explored public’s willingness to use COVID-19 immunity certificates across six different domestic scenarios.DesignCross-sectional online survey.SettingUK representative survey conducted on the 3rd of August 2021.Participants534 UK residents over 18 years old.InterventionsParticipants replied to the same set of questions.Primary and secondary outcome measuresThe primary outcome measure was willingness to use immunity certificates across three different domestic settings (1. Visiting the GP for a non-urgent health issue, 2. Dining in a restaurant, and 3. Attending a performance in a theatre). For each setting two options, one prioritising convenience (option A) and the other privacy (option B), were offered. Our secondary outcome measures were computed indices from items adapted from the Health Belief Model; Attitudes towards sharing immunity status with service providers; Prior to COVID-19 lifestyle. In addition, we recorded data about respondents’ socio-demographic characteristics.ResultsRespondents were more willing to use immunity certificates that prioritised convenience, rather than privacy, when visiting their GP (92%). However, privacy was more favorable (84%) in the other two settings (dining in a restaurant and going to a theatre) compared to convenience (39%). Personal beliefs about COVID-19 and immunity certificates were associated with variations in willingness to use these across all scenarios. No variations were observed across socio-demographics and lifestyle.ConclusionsThe findings of this survey suggest that there is not one size fits all solution for designing immunity certificates. Immunity certificates are complex socio-technical systems, any attempt to implement these for domestic use should be tailored to different settings and user needs. The design of certification services requires a more evidence-based approach and further research is needed to understand how different settings, design elements (like convenience or privacy) and personal beliefs about the pandemic should inform their design.Strengths and limitations of this studyThis study presents unique knowledge about the public’s willingness to use immunity certificates for domestic purposes where there is very little published research at the moment.The study reports knowledge about the interaction between individual characteristics, domestic settings, and types of immunity certificate design on willingness to use these certificates.UK nationally representative sample for age, gender, and ethnic background, but limited to people who have the means and capacity to use digital technologies (survey administered using Prolific.co).We present evidence-based recommendations for Public Health services and policy makers about the use of immunity certificates in different domestic settings.Since, as to the writing of this paper, COVID-19 certification has not been mandated in the UK, the scenarios used in the survey were hypothetical..

Boehnert, J, Mair, S, Landa-Avila, C (Accepted for publication) Powering Productivity— Mapping Method Report, Mapping the evidence base on productivity, energy and wellbeing This project used a combination of conventional literature reviewing and participatory systems mapping techniques to map the evidence base on the links between energy and productivity, and productivity and wellbeing. Workshops brought together experts from policy and academic communities. At these workshops, participants used systems oriented design techniques to visualise key relationships and tensions in our understanding of productivity. The outputs from the workshop were used to guide literature reviews and innovative visualisations..

Healthcare systems are dealing with an increasing diversity of needs from different stakeholders. These multiple needs trigger different outcomes that need to be addressed. This workshop will implement a visual method that allows participants to discuss/negotiate their views and map a shared vision that integrates their multiple outcomes, values and trade-offs..
