D01: Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) Toolkit User Experiences:
What Can We Learn from Version 2.0?
 

9:30 - 11:45 am

The development and dissemination of the SRA toolkit by The Center for Health Design, in partnership with a diverse pool of healthcare design and clinical care experts, provides a comprehensive tool to support and focus the efforts of the valuable human resources informing these risk analyses. While still in the early stages of adoption, the SRA has been field tested by a number of design and healthcare entities. Others have considered or attempted to utilize the tool, and others are waiting for feedback from the early adopters. Using a case-study format, this deep-dive interactive session will describe the experiences of several organizations that are using the SRA in a variety of project types.  
 

D02: Recognizing Exemplary Achievements in Evidence-Based Design
1:45 - 2:45 pm

Since the launch of the EDAC (Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification) program, more than 2,400 individuals have obtained this certification. Many of these individuals and their organizations have applied an evidence-based design (EBD) process in projects throughout the world. These projects aimed to increase value and measurably improve safety; quality; organizational performance; and the experiences of patients, families and staff. The Center for Health Design Touchstone Award, premiered in 2017, acknowledges and recognizes projects that have demonstrated exemplary use of an EBD process with achievement in three areas: Collaborate, Evaluate, and Share. Join this deep-dive workshop and hear the specific details about the winning projects and how they applied the EBD process in a variety of healthcare environments.

E42: Research Matters: 10 Picks for the Year
9:45 -10:45 am

To apply evidence-based design, you have to know what the best available evidence is. But research is published faster than anyone can read it. How can researchers and practitioners keep up with the most important work? In this rapid-fire session, experts from The Center for Health Design will present their version of visual abstracts for 10 articles of the past year, discussing what we’ve learned and what we still need to know. This session will help participants ride the waves in an ocean of evidence, without drowning in it. But more: It will provide a shared body of knowledge for the health design community.
