The first public symposium will bring together academics and healthcare professionals to discuss future possibilities for healthcare design.
The Design for Wellbeing network will host its first public symposium focusing on the gaps in how health care settings are designed.
The Design for Wellbeing Network is a international and interdisciplinary group of researchers who work across architecture, design, health technologies and social science. Focusing specifically on hospitals and other formal healthcare settings, the network aims to improve the understanding of how people experience these services and environments, and to work towards improvements in these experiences through rigorous qualitative and practice-based research.
About the symposium
The first public symposium will bring together academics and healthcare professionals to discuss future possibilities for healthcare design. Over the course of half a day, the symposium will showcase several research projects that interrogate design for wellbeing. At the end of the day, health care industry professionals will present some of their best practice projects. To conclude the day we will invite all attendees to discuss the topic 'What are the gaps in healthcare design?'
This event has been made possible through a capability development fund grant for Design and Creative Practice Enabling Capabilities Platform at RMIT University.
