The EDAC Study Guides provide a thorough explanation of the evidence-based design process along with detailed information about the five areas that are included in the exam. 

Volume 1: An Introduction to Evidence-Based Design: Exploring Healthcare and Design, reviews the history of evidence-based design, current legislation, the trends affecting healthcare today and the various settings in which care delivery occurs.

Volume 2: Building the Evidence Base: Understanding Research in Healthcare Design, explores the value of using credible research in healthcare design and how design solutions can be empirically evaluated to create new evidence. 

Volume 3: Integrating Evidence-Based Design: Practicing the Healthcare Design Process, offers practical examples from real case studies to demonstrate how EBD is applied during the typical design process.

To take advantage of this Leap Year offer, simply register for the EDAC exam by February 29, 2016, (you will have a full year to take the exam), and you will be emailed the discount code for the study guides. For more information about the EDAC exam, the advantages of being EDAC certified, and to register for the exam, click here.
