Quality Physical Environment in Paediatric Wards: Designer’s Creation Versus Users’ Satisfaction
Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences
Prior research has revealed that an optimal healing environment can enhance a child’s quality of life by supporting the healing process. However, little has been done to identify specific design features within an optimal healing environment that either impede or aid the healing process.
Physical Environment: The Major Determinant Towards the Creation of a Healing Environment?
Procedia-Social and Behavioral Sciences
Prior research suggests that the pediatric population’s heightened perception of the quality of the physical environment can have an impact on the creation of a healing environment.
