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.
