Megan Denham is part of the Research Faculty at SimTigrate Design Lab within the College of Architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her research focuses on evidence-based design to improve healthcare facilities, reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections, improve clinical processes, and promote patient- and family-centered care. She recently completed a systematic literature review on the built environment’s role in the acquisition and prevention of HAIs in collaboration with Emory University and funded by AHRQ and RTI International. In response to the Ebola virus disease outbreak, she has begun collaborating with colleagues from the Emory SCDU and Johns Hopkins to understand factors in the environment that can support safer care in biomedical patient units. Megan has authored multiple peer-reviewed journal articles and given many presentations focused on infection control and promoting patient-centered care.
