Have you wondered what evidence-based design (EBD) is and would you like to incorporate this process into your practice or on your next project? If so, this interactive session will provide you with an introduction to the steps of the EBD process and offers practical guidance to get you started using this process to help shape the future of design going forward.

Long-term care facilities, particularly senior living have been  impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and communities across the country responded by enforcing new social distancing requirements to keep residents safe. Industry experts will share how their organizations responded to the pandemic, as well as best practices to consider as the industry begins to rethink senior living care models of care and space planning. 

The workshop is a blend of educational content and collaborative discussion that will prepare you to be a better client or partner by giving you information and tools to address some of the challenges facing healthcare today. Once you register for this workshop, The Center for Health Design will contact you to complete a questionnaire prior to attending the session. This information will be used to match you with a coach who will provide individualized coaching tailored to your specific questions and issues.
