Mar 18, 2014 3:00pm ‐ Mar 18, 2014 4:00pm

Standard: $30.00
Members: $15.00

Description

Health care design relies on emotional and psychological response to one's surroundings. Anxiety, fear, stress, and other responses can affect patient safety and the delivery of care, and the physical environment can have a strong influence on these reactions. This presentation will address neuroscience developments and the how designers can use these findings to increase the safety and effectiveness of care delivery. This session will include Q&A and will enable attendees to:

  • Examine developments in neuroscience theories and technology as they apply to health care design.
  • Explore potential means of developing performance metrics using neuroscience studies.
  • Identify implications for the health care design practice.
  • Analyze future implications for Affordable Care Act-era design.
