With the pressures to design superior health care projects on time and under budget, incredible opportunities to conduct practitioner-led research are often lost. Research demands significant planning and coordination, requires financial resources, and typically involves numerous stakeholders – but conducting the research is not impossible. During this session, you will learn proven strategies for conducting high-quality research within your design practice. Based on lessons learned from practice-based research conducted during the past five years and by taking a peek at upcoming research, participants will be able to develop a strategy to transform the future of health care design. This session will enable attendees to:
Describe at least three design-based studies conducted in an architectural practice and how the findings may inform future design decisions to improve health care outcomes.
Describe at least three research methods appropriate for design-based research.
List at least three barriers to producing high-quality research in professional practice and offer suggestions for overcoming them.
Plan a research strategy to transform the future of your architectural practice.
