An Evidence-Based Design Furniture Checklist
9am ET/6am PT
EDAC Course ID: C12-001-WEB
Healthcare leaders are routinely confronted with a dizzying assortment of furniture choices over a healthcare facility's 30-year-plus life. This presentation will share research that links furniture features to eight common evidence-based design (EBD) goals, including healthcare-associated infections, patient falls and injuries, and medication errors. Participants will receive the "EBD Furniture Checklist"—a tool, developed from research and industry standards, to be used to make informed furniture investment decisions across the furniture life cycle and to improve healthcare outcomes. Checklist-use experiences and lessons learned will be discussed, along with recommendations for additional research and industry standards.
Speakers: Eileen Malone of Mercury Healthcare Consulting,Barbara Dellinger of HDR Inc., and Michelle Ossmann of Georgia Institute of Technology

Interiors for Health and Healing
1pm ET/10am PT
EDAC Course ID: C12-003-WEB
As new construction in the healthcare sector wanes, more emphasis is being placed on upgrading facility interiors. This session explores a new approach for development of interiors for health and healing. Starting with the historical evolution of healthcare interiors and moving to the baseline of data at the intersection of EBD, LEED and Lean principles that apply to interior design, the presenters will posit where the next generation of interiors will come from. Best practices will be identified and “next” practices discussed as the audience is challenged to establish a future research agenda around restorative health and healing.
Speakers: Rosalyn Cama and Elizabeth Oshana of CAMA Incorporated
