Workshops + Conferences

Professionals within medicine and allied health fields have begun to reach out to those in the design professions to ask for additional knowledge of the impact of architecture on their practice, and to acquire understanding of the design process itself.  While multiple groups and organizations focus on healthcare and healthful design, our mission is to create networks whereby clinicians can efficiently share their insights of emerging technologies and practices that are increasingly transforming health & care delivery, provider wellbeing and enhancing patient care.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN FOR IMPROVED HEALTHCARE DELIVERY

17 SEPTEMBER, 2017, STANFORD UNIVERSITY

How might we re-envision the hospital going forward?

Designers can walk the halls and talk to clinicians, but it can be challenging to learn the intricacies of a profession and its details of practice. Hybrid professionals can provide integrated solutions which cross disciplines in new ways, thus bridging this gap. Encouraging architects to experience medicine from a perspective that is typically hidden and allowing physicians to realize how design can create a context for participation would allow for a deeper understanding of health care delivery. By applying design-thinking to medicine, multidisciplinary approaches for solving current health care challenges can be developed.

Clinicians for Design Forum

13 June 2017, Royal College of Physicians, London, UK

An invitation-only forum brings together clinicians with direct experience and expressed interest in transforming environments that enrich the healthcare interface. With a vision to enrich the healthcare experience, the workshop will discuss innovations and systems that may inform design guidelines and policies.

An afternoon session during the European Healthcare Design Congress will include presentations by clinicians and experts that include the NHS Future Hospital Programme. This session is open to registrants of the European Healthcare Design Congress.

Contact us for further information if you or colleagues may be interested in participating in Clinicians for Design.
