    Adolescence can be a tumultuous time in one’s life. Mental health conditions often surface during this stage, and it may be the first time that some patients enter an inpatient behavioral health unit. How can design best support this patient population that is transitioning from childhood to adulthood? Learn how a design team utilized research, Lean processes, and innovation to solve the challenges of this unique patient population for the 27-bed Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit in Tacoma, Wash. Find out how design can support a seclusion- and restraint-free care model and how pushing beyond the conventions of behavioral healthcare design was achieved.

    Art and Science: in their finest expressions, they are one and the same. We face complex problems and no single approach can provide all the answers. One cannot be a socially responsible designer or scientist without using both intuition and research. This presentation cites historical and contemporary examples of individuals who support their simultaneous use to achieve creativity.

    January 2018 Webinar
    When we design healthcare facilities, we may not always have a complete understanding of how we can proactively design for safety and account for risk beyond fire and life safety. How can we more effectively consider safety issues like infections, falls, medication errors, injuries associated with patient handing or behavioral health, and security? This webinar introduces the new, easier to use, online interface for The Center’s Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) toolkit, a proactive and systematic approach to designing and renovating healthcare facilities for safety. Originally developed through research and consensus to support the requirements of the FGI Guidelines, The Center's research team will walk you through the why, what, and how of each part of the online SRA toolkit illustrating features with vignettes gathered from the testing process.

    Remember doctor’s visits when you were growing up? The wooden tongue depressor. The well-worn stethoscope. As design harnesses digital, materials, and networking technologies, a very new health experience is just over the horizon. Proactive, lifestyle design, tracking real-time health data, non-invasive tools and custom “just for you” treatments based on your actual genome, are here. Together they are leading us to “stage zero” detection and treatment which has the potential to double or better the lifespan of every first-world citizen. This webinar highlights the macro factors shaping these realities, along with an in-depth exploration of the various impacts of and opportunities for design.
