Samsuri, Suhaila (2007) Development of Breast Health Information Kiosk in Malaysia. Masters thesis, Universiti Putra Malaysia.

Abstract / Synopsis

The Breast Health Information Kiosk is developed based on the principle issue that concerns breast health. Recent statistics showed that breast diseases have become a fatal cause to women. This kiosk is devised and designed carefully by taking into considerations of the end users’ basic needs, in promoting enhancement of their knowledge in breast health. The developer and medical experts jointly combined ideas and efforts to disseminate profound and verified information, which is conveniently understandable by all quarters of people. Initially, a survey called ‘User Needs Study’ was conducted to ensure the design of the system satisfies the users’ expectations. This was followed by a Pilot Test, which shows that the kiosk successfully achieved the acceptable usability criteria. This will determine the user’s acceptance of kiosk. This kiosk is able to provide a platform to preserve, update and deliver the essential breast health information produced by local researchers for the Malaysian society. The main focus of this kiosk is to assist in reducing breast cancer cases, which is alarming, subsequently improving the quality of health of Malaysian people generally.
