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.

October 2017 Webinar
This webinar highlights the macro factors shaping these realities, along with an in-depth exploration of the various impacts of and opportunities for design. 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.

August 2017 Webinar
This webinar will illustrate how the Sharp team created the new Ocean View Tower, a 170,000-square-foot, 138-bed hospital addition, to go beyond just good practice to a “hardwire the environment” scenario for zero harm to patients, visitors, and staff. The presenters describe the planning, design, and construction from each of their perspectives and share outcomes and critical lessons learned.

March 2013 Webinar
In this webinar learn about the role of the FGI Guidelines in project design and development – What they are; who uses them; and why they are an important as a reference in project reviews, learn about the proposed change to the 2014 Guidelines – How your work will be affected and where to find the research/evidence to support “Access to Nature” in your next project, obtain an understanding of the “Environment of Care” concept – Its basis, components, and use in overall project design, and identify the Advocacy role of the Environmental Standards Council, how it supports the work of the Center for Health Design, and how you can participate.

This webinar explores how to: become familiar with research that goes beyond the subjective evaluation of color, learn how lighting and color work together to enhance or create disharmony in the healthcare setting, gain confidence in applying color and see “best practice” examples of new projects, and learn about the aging eye and how this can impact safety.

The Military Health System (MHS) includes over 300 Medical Centers, Hospitals and Clinics located worldwide on Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps installations. In 2011, the MHS began transforming its over 440 primary care practices within MTFs into the PCMH model of care and adopted NCQA PCMH standards to establish consistent Tri-Service operating principles, which the Uniformed Services used to develop MTF operating guidance. As a result, the MHS has been able to standardize business and clinical operational workflow, appointing/scheduling templates, staffing models, performance measures, goals and a capitated revised financing model.

April 2015 Webinar
Much of illumination design and science are concerned with the delivery of optimal lighting conditions to the human eye. There are many more effects than those involving vision, sleep, and circadian rhythms. This presentation will use an "inside-out" approach to consideration of effects of light, by taking a look at how the human nervous system works, and how light is involved in non-visual responses.

March 2015 Webinar
Is it possible to decrease patient fall injury severity using a flooring material? Playground surfaces are required to have a force reduction factor to reduce the number and severity of head injuries among children. This is not true yet for healthcare flooring. This presentation describes the role flooring material has on patient and resident falls and fall injury, and identifies current and future research study needs.
