Architecture for better patient safety

 

Category: Quality of care and patient safety

 
Learning objectives
This session will discuss how to take building design from concept to reality, factoring planning, design, construction as well as the commissioning (move-in) phase of a new or renovated healthcare facility. Key factors such as having a clear understanding of the plan and implementation across all parties involved – leadership, staff, architects, construction workers, and others- are also address to avoid unnecessary distractions, delays, and regulatory barriers.
 
Summary of the session
A healthcare facility’s new or improved design establishes the basis for safe and effective care within that structure. Each design decision for health care facilities impacts the care and well-being of patients and users for many years to come.
 
Designing and executing a construction or renovation project requires resources, education, communication, and collaboration throughout the process. When patient safety is at risk, the stakes for a successful project are even higher.
