June 2018 Webinar
This webinar will feature disruptive telemedicine technologies and explore their potential to launch a virtual medical care delivery model that challenges the heart of our healthcare system—the patient-doctor relationship. These virtual care technologies are having significant influence on healthcare design because they demand very different kinds of facilities, and in some cases no facilities at all.

May 2018 Webinar
In this webinar, you will learn about an innovative clinic design and care-delivery model, as well as the real-time locating system (RTLS) technology that supports it. Yet how do you design a clinic and its workflow without a waiting room, where exam rooms are always free for the next patient, where patients make their own way through the halls, and where providers and staff easily know where to go next?

Issue Brief
February 2015 Issue Brief

As part of the communication toolbox, in this issue brief you will learn about elements of the built environment that improve nurse-patient communication, design interventions that could improve nurse-patient communication as found in the literature and how to ask better questions surrounding this critical relationship during your next project.

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.

February 2014 Webinar
This webinar will guide you through incorporating ambulatory care design trends and evidenced-based design principles when designing for ambulatory facilities. Learn from success stories at the UW Health – Yahara Clinic, an outpatient facility in Monona, Wisconsin. The presentation highlights Yahara Clinic’s operational concept of self-rooming and design for Integrated Care Team space. Post occupancy outcomes will be shared, including an 83% reduction in staff footsteps and 25% improvement in patient satisfaction scores.

August 2013 Webinar
This webinar discusses how different modeling and simulation approaches best serve different goals. Learn how statistical methods allow models to be run over time and predict future needs for people, space and equipment. Virtual reality and full scale mockup methods allow a wider range of stakeholders to meaningfully participate throughout a design process, including during early design. Modeling and simulation can also support and amplify the impact of an EBD-based design program.

May 2013 Webinar
Positive distractions have been found to reduce stress and improve healthcare outcomes. However, research on this topic is generally lacking in certain pediatric settings. This webinar details recent studies that examined the effects of positive distraction interventions on pediatric patients and their families but used different methods in different settings. The in-depth findings and practical knowledge around the process of implementing two research studies is beneficial to researchers and designers.
