November 2018 Webinar
Dr. Robert Zarr, a DC Pediatrician and founder of Park Rx America will discuss how sterile work environments in clinics and hospitals are contributing to doctor burnout and elevated levels of stress and anxiety among patients. From personal experience and research, Dr. Zarr believes that reference to nature in the workplace and providing opportunities for staff and patients to be outdoors in nature-focused settings can help provide relief.   Jack Sullivan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture at the University of Maryland.  Professor Sullivan’s recent research focuses on the healing potential of nature in the city.  He will discuss how designers around the world are building the “City of To-Morrow”, one project at a time, transforming post-industrial landscapes into places of healing.

November 2018 Webinar
Physicians traditionally don’t view space as a component of patient care delivery.  Nurses, however, treat the physical space as part of the continuum of care. They attempt to triage the sickest patients, based upon bed availability, to locations with greatest visibility and adjacency using a ‘neighborhood’ or team approach.  Nurses view their unit as a ‘one size does NOT fit all’ situation. This is the underlying construct of precision medicine. In this webinar, presenters will discuss the next step of precision medicine in the ICU environment and how to adapt the existing space to improve patient care. They used the Caring Behavior Inventory 16 survey to understand the patient and family perspective of care delivery according to location of their patient room. The study focused on four questions related to the physical space and will report the results of this pilot study. Their demonstration will promote discussion on where the optimal caring locations can be for both the care team and the patient and family.

Quality healthcare is not explicitly synonymous with efficiency, but Intermountain Healthcare is determined to deliver both. Hear how the largest healthcare provider in Utah has taken its knowledge and application of Lean principles to plant the seeds to take the system to a new level. Park City Medical Center and the Cottonwood Clinic will be offered as case studies and described in terms of process, planning, and tools used to affect change. A thorough discussion of quantifiable, initial outcomes, including how design solutions have impacted change across an entire health system, will be discussed.

Born out of a vision from renowned child psychiatrist and human geneticist Dr. Matthew State, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Child, Teen & Family Center and Department of Psychiatry Building will be the first-ever UCSF facility for both pediatric and adult psychiatric patients and one of the first facilities in the U.S. to integrate the neurosciences with traditional psychiatry for child, adolescent and adult patient populations. The integration of these diverse disciplines under one roof will create a hub for research and training to advance the normalization, prevention and treatment of mental illness.

We all know that the family unit paradigm has changed and healthcare delivery services have changed. People are living longer while experiencing wide ranges of health issues. Caring for aging parents or family members with degenerative diseases is commonplace. The demands placed on the home to provide a safe haven that promotes wellness and independence is a growing and very under-answered need. Home healthcare is one of the rapidly growing industries helping with daily living, but within the design community, there remains a gap.

​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. 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.
