A25 - State of the Science: A Review of Notable Studies Published in HERD

When: November 4, 2019
Time: 1:00pm Central

This presentation provides an information-rich retrospective review of studies published in HERD, the Health Environments Research & Design Journal, during the past 10 years. The HERD Journal has become the premier source for peer-reviewed research on health environments and reaches an international audience of researchers, clinicians, and design practitioners. Session participants will expand their knowledge about the current state of the science of healthcare design. Health related environmental science has been emerging over the past decade, and there are currently enough published studies to develop systematic literature reviews to guide healthcare design decision-making and the development of design guidelines.
