Understanding the Patient in
Learn the specifics about the ideal healing
environments for diverse patient groups.
2011 AIA GA Design Conference
"Patient-Centered Design" is a principle that should
be in the forefront of any health facility project. It is a
philosophy by which building owners and their
design teams create and develop spaces to be
used by patients. This principle takes into account
the needs of patients and their families, and
methods for delivering the best care to them.
Often, designers find themselves working with
limited information about patients. This series will
offer new lessons regularly that explain the
commonly overlooked details of seeking medical
treatment and how these factors may be influenced
by the built environment. Written by designers and
for designers, the lessons include valuable input
from interviews with patients and clinicians.
