Live Course: Guidance from the Front Line of COVID-19 Care


This course presents the results of a study conducted with front line COVID-19 healthcare providers and subject matter experts in emergency medicine, intensive care, anesthesia, infection control, hospital operations, virology and research-based design. New design guidance for health care facilities was developed by translating input from clinician interviews and current literature that reveal urgent and essential adaptations to healthcare settings in order to reduce the risk of transmission to care providers, staff, patients, and visitors. The results are summarized in a checklist of design considerations and solutions that may be applied in a myriad of healthcare \and built settings. The value of translating subject matter expertise is clear as it supports informed decision making in response to the unique challenges of the novel coronavirus.
