Building Blocks: New Design Strategies and Solutions for Pediatric Settings Workshop


When: September 17, 2019
Time: 9:00am Eastern
What: Agenda
Price: $515

 

$515

Today’s designers, architects and healthcare providers are faced with the continued challenge of creating care environments that will meet the needs of patients ranging in age from infant to adolescent and the clinical staff providing their care. Creating effective design solutions means first understanding the daily needs of the pediatric patient population and their families, as well as the specialized practice protocols and processes of pediatric medicine.

Join us for this one day interactive, collaborative, problem-solving workshop intended to enable project stakeholders (designers, facility executives, administrators, care providers) to employ physical design strategies and methodologies that support improved care for children. Nationally acclaimed faculty will present pediatric specific evidence-based design best practices and case studies that integrate architecture, design and technology with innovative medical practice to create high-quality, high-tech care in a safe and enriching environment. Attendees will also share questions and ideas with the faculty and fellow attendees through interactive panel discussions.

Learning Objectives

Hear the industry's leading health facility design experts and providers share how design is making a difference in the lives of children and their families.

  • Articulate the latest trends in pediatric care and how the built environment enables that care.

  • Understand the role of positive distractions in the care process and how design can be integral to providing those positive distractions for patients and their families.

  • Consider the role that demographics often plays in children’s healthcare spaces and how design can assist in serving a culturally diverse population with differing customs and needs for social interaction and support.

  • Hear about case studies of state-of-the-art facilities and determine how best practices from those initiatives can be applied to other pediatric healthcare settings.

 

Who Should Attend

This unique experience is ideal for individuals who are involved in the design and operations of new pediatric care environments and those wishing to evaluate the quality of their existing facilities.

Designing for Pediatric Patients and Their Parents During the Ambulatory Surgical Process

There has been a dramatic increase in the number of pediatric patients undergoing ambulatory surgical procedures over the last two decades due to advances in technology and surgical techniques. To meet this demand, healthcare organizations are rapidly building ambulatory surgery centers. Perioperative anxiety can have profound and lasting effect on children, and is a common challenge for children and their parents, as well as for pediatric anesthesiologists. When designing ambulatory surgical environments, it is essential to understand how the physical healthcare environment can either mitigate or contribute to child and parent anxiety from both child and parent perspectives. This session will share findings from a recent research study that investigated the effect of using an induction room vs. the operating room on child and parent anxiety. We will provide an in-depth look at child and parent perceptions of two ambulatory surgical environments, and discuss valuable insights for designers, clinicians, and healthcare executives in providing a more positive ambulatory surgical experience for pediatric patients and their parents.

The Next Big Ideas in NICU Design

NICUs are transitioning in many ways, both operationally and structurally. Family involvement is now a given rather than an afterthought, with important implications.  Large numbers of infants with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome require new concepts of care.  Specialized areas within the NICU for tiny babies, neurointensive care, surgical care, and others are being developed.  Anticipating the scope of these and other changes over the lifetime of a new unit is challenging, but recent experience in trendsetting units can help inform the next generation of NICU care and design.

Creative Planning for the Future of Pediatric Healthcare

How can we plan for the future of healthcare when the uncertainty is so high and the only thing we know for sure is that change is imminent? One option is start with two things that we know for sure – First, healthcare is working to catch up to other industries more focused on user experience, continuous customer engagement, interactive and predictive technologies, and location-agnostic services; Second, pediatric care is not experiencing the same shifts in healthcare delivery as adult medicine and therefore needs a unique approach to planning.  Workshop participants will learn how to conduct an interactive exercise with their own clinical and facilities planning teams, designed to produce a diversity of ideas about the future. Organizing concepts and prioritizing those most likely to impact future flexibility can harness creative energy and productively advance a forward-thinking approach to planning children’s healthcare facilities that will stand the test of time and adapt to whatever the future brings. Join us as we delve into the future of pediatric care and discuss the contribution that a creative planning process can make.

Designing for an Improved Pediatric Healing Experience

For children and their families experiencing pediatric healthcare facilities, healthcare design done well can promote physical and emotional healing. This session explores accessible ways that design can enhance healing environments. With strategies that include harnessing the power of biophilia, building spaces for play and respite, and use of color, we will discuss methods for improving pediatric healthcare environments for better outcomes.
