English abstract:
This paper introduces some initial design ideas for TOPIC CarePortfolio. TOPIC, The Online Platform for Informal Carers, is a European Project under the AAL Joint Programme that sets out to develop an array of integrated solutions to support informal carers in both the care and social dimension of their lives. In this paper we discuss the design of a few features for the platform, which has been informed by findings from the pre-study performed in the first phase of the project and different design patterns found in the literature. The pattern approach used for the project is an attempt for increasing the likelihood of designing solutions whose interfaces are intuitive and demonstrate good usability levels.
