March 2019 Webinar
This webinar will present an overview of the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center garden research project. For this project, The Center for Health Design awarded Legacy Health and Quatrefoil, Inc. its 2018 Evidence-Based Design Touchstone Award at the highest Platinum Level. Attendees will gain an understanding of the impact of an evidence-based design (EBD) process to create a hospital garden to reduce stress in three different user groups, learn the positive effects of a garden on different hospital populations, and see how the garden is used in daily programming to serve all hospital populations.

Webinar
August 2018 Webinar
​ This webinar will highlight how patient data can be used in research, discuss the process of requesting and acquiring patient data, and explain how to conduct analyses to test design hypotheses. Patient-level medical records data has been a largely untapped resource in healthcare design research, despite its potential to help our field generate stronger evidence of the impact of design on patient outcomes.

The goal for this project was to create a highly realistic participatory learning experiences in an environment that does not involve an actual patient. This method of teaching is rapidly becoming a new standard in both primary and continuing education for health professionals. The intent is to improve learning experiences through improved personal and technical skills and interdisciplinary team communications in an environment designed and built around current evidence-based medicine, evidence-based practice and evidence-based design knowledge.
