Incentives in medical domain

Hi everybody,

I work at a company who develops medical devices. There are strict
regulations concerning bribary in this domain. Becuase of that my boss
is very concerned about giving incentives to nurses or doctors who
participate in an usability test or a focus group or something

Does anybody here also work in the medical domain or a similar
regulated area? How do you handle incentives for users who participate
in evaluations of prototypes or requirement analysises?

Thanks in advance,

UI Design Pattern for, or a an example of, very large content text heavy websites

Hi everyone,
I am working for a consortium based institute that supports clinical
research in the area. We currently have a very text-heavy site with a
lot of content. I am looking into remodeling the website and am
wondering if we have any UI design patters for handling/showing
text-heavy content in a effective/easy/searchable manner ?
Also, are there any examples of sites that do this really well?

Thanks for your help.

Incredibly Ticked Off

Tonight I responded to a discussion board post seeking advice on getting a job in UX. In context, it was nice and normal and addressed the concerns in the original post. However, for some reason, my post went to an email list completely without context. Shortly after, I received an email from a CEO believing I was directing my response to her, which would have been completely inappropriate, and out of context - downright rude.

I think a large part of the power here is that it makes available
more possibilities. We are no longer limited to the standard widget
set that we have been since the advent of the GUI.

I know Glassdoor.com was discussed on here in June [1].

It is being launched next week in the UK (nice one Jeff!) and the BBC did an
interesting piece on TV this morning with Robert Hohman [2].

Less Ix discussion more economic, but given that it was a heavily Ix/Ux
driven project by one of our peers I thought you'd all be interested.
