Over the last decade, design research for healthcare practice has become a valuable in-house commodity used to inform planning and design. For most firms, it is no longer a question of whether to practice Evidence-based Design (EBD), but rather how to. Many firms with limited resources turn to outside research consultants and materials shared by large firm's research departments. How can these firms more closely integrate EBD into their practice through internal initiatives? This webinar will share strategies for getting started, sustaining, and growing EBD within a firm. Design Researchers from a small and medium sized firm will share opportunities and challenges they encountered to describe lessons learned while launching an EBD initiative within their respective firms.
