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

Long-term care facilities, particularly senior living environments, were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as communities across the country responded by enforcing new social distancing requirements to keep residents safe. In this workshop, industry experts will share how  organizations responded during the pandemic, and how you can use evidence to begin rethinking models of care and space planning.

This workshop is a blend of educational content and collaborative discussions 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 ask 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 in dedicated coaching sessions throughout the day. 

Attendees will receive:

  • Free A Practitioner’s Guide to Evidence Based Design AND 40% discount off the EDAC Study Guides OR
  • A Practitioner's Guide to Evidence-Based Design AND A Visual Reference to Evidence-Based Design
