From the Publisher
The growing movement towards evidence-based healthcare design has largely emphasised a change of culture and attitudes. It has advocated for new ways of working, but until now, it has not focused on equipping healthcare clients and their designers with the practical means to exploit the potential benefits from evidence-based architectural design.
Development of indicators and tools that aid designers and users of the built environments in thinking about quality enhances the design process to achieve better outcomes. Importantly, design tools can support managers and designers through end-user involvement and an increased understanding of what patients and staff expect from their healthcare facilities. They can facilitate the creation of patient-centred environments which improve user satisfaction.
Design Tools for Evidence-Based Healthcare Design:
Illustrated with case studies from throughout the UK and written by a well-known expert in the field, this book will provide essential reading for anyone involved in healthcare design.
