Title: Habitats for Healers: Architectural Design for Clinicians
Location: Georgetown University
Date: October 28, 2019
This Plenary presentation by Dr. Anderson focuses on aspects of healthcare architecture which impact the experience of delivering care and clinician well-being. Can space design help address some aspects of the burnout and moral distress experienced by providers of care? What is the role of the clinician in the healthcare architecture process?
Clinicians are increasingly asking to acquire new skill-sets and knowledge in design thinking to develop novel modes of practice and models of care. Dr. Anderson explores how cross-disciplinary collaboration between the architect and the clinician provides a mechanism for positive change in healthcare.
