Designing for Healthcare Worker Safety & Wellness
Tuesday, July 23, 2024 | 2pm ET The rising occurrence of violence in the healthcare workspace is a growing concern. In a recent survey, 72% of healthcare workers said their biggest safety concern is patients becoming violent. Another 61% said their biggest safety concern is the mental health impact of burnout. These concerns are affecting healthcare worker recruitment and retention with 68% prioritizing workplace safety when looking for a job and more than half noting they would be likely to quit if a violent incident occurred.  Healthcare workers' mental and physical safety is a real and urgent concern affecting clinical care. The built environment must adapt and support these concerns. Join this panel of healthcare leaders to discuss and address operational and architectural healthcare modifications to create a safer work environment with improved wellness for staff. Presented in partnership with the Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH).

Pediatric Healthcare Design: Practical Applications of VR, Eye-Tracking, and Biosensors
Tuesday, August 13, 2024 | 2pm ET Research shows the design of pediatric inpatient rooms significantly impacts the emotional and physiological well-being of young patients and their families. Hear findings from studies using virtual reality (VR), eye-tracking, and facial electromyography (EMG) to evaluate various design elements, including artwork, privacy features, and social support areas. These studies provide evidence-based insights into creating therapeutic environments that enhance comfort, reduce stress, and improve patient experience and satisfaction. Learn how to apply these innovative methodologies in practical settings to improve health care outcomes. Explore the implications of these findings for architects and designers, emphasizing the role of neuroarchitecture and biofeedback in developing effective and supportive health care environments. This course is aimed at professionals who are seeking to incorporate research and technology into pediatric health care design to foster health and well-being. Presented in partnership with the Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH).
