Among the icons of healthcare planning and design, the odyssey of Jim and Lari Diaz of KMD Architects coincides with 50 years of “radical transformation.” Their careers have been nurtured by a culture of inquiry that fostered innovation and creative approaches to meet ever-evolving industry needs resulting from social changes, cultural revolutions and advances in medicine and technology. In this session, Jim and Lari look back over the past 50 years and describe the chemistry between them and their accomplishments.
The Effects Of Positive Distractions In Pediatric Environments
Anjali Joseph, Ph.D, EDAC
11:00 am PDT/ 2:00 pm EDT
Positive distractions have been found to reduce stress and improve healthcare outcomes. However, research on this topic is generally lacking in certain pediatric settings. This webinar will detail recent studies that examined the effects of positive distraction interventions on pediatric patients and their families but used different methods in different settings. The research findings from two studies will be shared and discussed.
2014 Guidelines for Residential Care Facilities
Jane Rohde, ACHA, AAHID, LEED AP
1:00 pm PDT/ 4:00 pm EDT
For the 2014 cycle of the Facilities Guidelines Institute’s health care design guidelines, a brand new volume is being developed for residential and senior living facilities; entitled the Guidelines for Residential Care Facilities: Design & Construction of Health, Care, and Support Facilities. This guideline includes nursing homes, hospice, assisted living, independent living, adult day care, and wellness/diagnostic facilities. The vetted approach to the guidelines is to provide design information, as well as parameters for Authorities Having Jurisdiction to evaluate and incorporate culture change and resident-centered approaches to the residential-based care.
