This workshop is designed to provide an in depth review of the EBD process to help designers and clients understand how to integrate EBD into projects. 


Whether you are wondering what evidence-based design (EBD) is and why it’s important, or you are EDAC-certified and want to fine tune or grow your skills, then attend this in-depth workshop to work directly with industry experts to learn from their years of evidence-based design experience. The day will prepare you to be a better partner or client by providing you with the knowledge and tools to address the challenges facing healthcare today. Attend on your own, or consider attending as a team to learn together how to integrate the EBD process.  

Healthcare organizations today are faced with increased transparency surrounding patient-safety and quality issues, declining reimbursement, the shift from volume to value, and the need to bend the cost curve as provisions from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act take effect. Learn more about these issues and how the built environment can bring solutions. This day will prepare you to be a better partner by providing you with the knowledge and tools to address the challenges facing healthcare today.


Workshop runs from 8:30am - 3:30pm. Once you register for this workshop, The Center for Health Design will contact you to complete a questionnaire prior to attending the workshop.

"It [this workshop] has been very enlightening and it’s very exciting to see this type of organization where we have the resources available to us to make a positive impact on design."

— Chad Okinaka, architect, past workshop attendee

"I've worked on both sides of the houses now -- I’ve been in a design firm and worked for an owner and I think what I am excited about in hearing all the conversations today is how we are trying to define the value that we bring. It is a really exciting time for us to help improve what we instinctively know is EBD; bring leaders into the conversation early and then continue to have dialogue with them during and after the project."

— Paul Tylar, design excellence lead, past workshop attendee
