Creating and Using an Evidence-based Design Glossary

In 2011, The Center for Health Design published a glossary of healthcare environment terms and outcome measures commonly used in evidence-based design research for seven key healthcare topics, many of which are tied to CMS reimbursement formulas: health-care associated infections, medical errors, patient falls, patient satisfaction, patient waiting, staff efficiency and staff satisfaction. Since then, the glossary has been continuously expanded to further promote the development, translation and use of research in healthcare design. Join us for a one-hour discussion about the methods used to create the EBD glossary, current work underway to expand the Glossary using the newly launched CHD Knowledge Repository, and finally how you might use this tool in your construction project, during your design education and with EBD research studies.
