Abstract

The collection for the paediatrician has been finalized by the second survey. 50 child patients, 50 patients’ parents and 20 paediatricians were interviewed again as in the primary survey. And the results indicated that they have different needs for the psychological preferences in style design. For the child patients, they gave emphasis on the aesthetic value; parents preferred the identifications of paediatricians and a traditional image; and, the paediatricians preferred the function of design and the traditional image.
