EFA Conference + Expo is a three-day event that delivers design strategies for senior living, through educational conference sessions, deep dive workshops, and community tours.
What is evidence-based design (EBD) and how can you use this process to advance person-centered care in your practice or on your next project? This interactive and immersive workshop will introduce you to the EBD process and offers practical guidance to help you get started and inform your person-centered design thinking. As the industry rethinks the planning and design of senior living environments, learn how the EBD process can be applied to develop strategies and interventions to improve quality of living, care and work outcomes for residents and staff.
This workshop is a blend of educational content and collaborative discussions. It is a unique opportunity to connect and converse with the co-chairs of the FGI’s Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care and Support Facilities – Addie, John & Gaius; and Chair Emeritus Jane Rohde.
Once you register for this workshop, The Center for Health Design will use your responses in a questionnaire to match you with an industry expert who will provide individualized coaching tailored to your specific questions, issues and goals. Light snacks and a boxed lunch will be provided. In addition, each attendee receives a bundle of EBD books and resources from The Center for Health Design. Registration is $395/person. Space is limited.
