    April 2019 Webinar
    By combining observation, interviews, simulation, and rapid prototyping, this team developed design solutions that help healthcare workers stay safe while engaged in challenging tasks. This webinar brings the experience of the healthcare practitioners who cared for Ebola patients during the 2014 outbreak and introduces a human-centered discovery approach developed by design researchers at SimTigrate Design Lab to define the design requirements of spaces where the risk of self- and cross-contamination is the highest.

    September 2018 Webinar
    This webinar explores the outcomes from a built prototype inpatient room at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, designed expressly for infection prevention. Review which strategies, materials, and technologies were deployed and learn the process for their selection, including the input from infection prevention officers. Attendees will view data on how the room, constructed and tested in the spring of 2017, is performing in terms of microbe suppression and ease of cleanability.

    March 2018 Webinar
    This webinar will discuss various environmental challenges including fall risk, infection control, wayfinding, spatial relationships, access to the outdoors, lighting, incontinence and wandering. Imagine if your challenges in creating person-centered environments were removed. Using evidence-based design principles to support your decisions as part of the planning and programming process is a practical way of supporting residents in existing and new settings.

    January 2018 Webinar
    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.

    June 2014 Webinar
    This presentation provides information on the current incidence of healthcare-associated infections in U.S. hospitals and design & construction considerations that can help prevent these outcomes. Examples of published outbreaks related to design and construction activity are provided. In addition, specific examples of design options and construction risk mitigation measures will be reviewed.
