We view the CogAids project as a living document. It will change over time. Because of the dynamic nature of its design, we recommend electronic use through PDF viewers or our upcoming iOS app and Kindle publication.
However, we also understand the need for paper-based cognitive aids. Not all healthcare professionals have access to electronic viewing devices. Dynamic code situations may also require the use of paper-based aids that can be quickly opened, viewed, and shared. For this reason, we want to make it easy for people to get paper-based printed versions of our cognitive aids.
Purchase printed paper copies: The Stanford AIM lab will print commercial-quality paper versions of the most up-to-date cognitive aids for sale to the general public. We are in the process of setting up an electronic payment portal. In the meantime, if you just can’t wait, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your purchase. The Stanford University AIM lab is a non-profit entity and all proceeds from the sale of our aids goes directly to the development, research, design and production of these aids.
Do-it-yourself printed paper copies: The Stanford AIM lab provides these aids to the public under a creative commons license that allows you to share and distribute this work, but not to sell or modify it. You must also provide attribution to the Stanford AIM lab. If you wish to print paper copies for yourself, please note that we require individuals or organizations wishing to print more than 10 copies to seek permission from us in advance. The aids may not be reproduced on commercial printing presses or manufactured in quantities greater than 10, nor may they be sold or used in any product or service (including computer software, mobile applications or devices). If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us by email.
Customization and personalization: The Stanford AIM lab is also willing to customize our cognitive aids to meet the needs of individual users and organizations. There is a fee to cover the cost of this customization. If you are interested in using our cognitive aids and would like us to customize them for you, please contact us directly.0
