The growing interest of multidisciplinary professions in the relationship between design and health was once again demonstrated at the annual Healthcare Design conference, held in 2008 in Washington DC, USA.
More than 3,600 delegates attended to participate in a comprehensive programme of didactic sessions and roundtable discussions. The conference’s aim is to gain new knowledge and understanding of how the design of built environments directly impacts the safety, operation, clinical outcomes and financial success of healthcare facilities now and into the future.
