What Is Evidence-based Design?

Evidence-based design (EBD) is the process of basing decisions about the built environment on credible research to achieve the best possible outcomes. The Center for Health Design created the evidence-based design accreditation and certification, EDAC, program to establish a definition and process for incorporating EBD into design. Today, EDAC is an internationally recognized program that awards certification to individuals who demonstrate an understanding of the application of EBD in the design, construction, renovation, expansion, and replacement of healthcare facilities.

There are no prerequisites for sitting for the examination. And now, you can practice with the EDAC Sample Exam.
