Health care work spaces have undergone radical change, yet have not evolved to support new models of care that rely on education, multi-disciplinary teamwork, and a collaborative process. The resulting friction between process and environment has led staff to opt out of using space while battling burnout in spaces that offer no support or respite. This session shares research on day-to-day pressures of care providers. Learn new approaches to work space implemented in inpatient and ambulatory projects and the lessons learned.
1.) Identify the relevant work space influences from outside of health care that can improve work and education in health care.
2.) Discover the correlation between improved work space and patient satisfaction and care outcomes.
3.) Address current burnout and retention issues with new workplace strategies.
4.) Implement “right spacing” strategies based on real world needs for improved education and collaboration.
