Seattle CEU | Designing for Family Support @ Atlas Workbase
Apr 10 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Designing for Family Support – The Foundation of Patient Experience
Exploring patient and family engaged care.

Research shows that when patients are engaged in their healthcare and when their family members are also involved and supported, it can lead to measurable improvements and positive outcomes for all stakeholders, including the hospital and community.

This course details the significance of patient-family involvement, identifying the clear benefits of a strong support loop that encompasses the patient and family, plus clinicians/staff and facilities managers. When family members and these stakeholders are well supported and when the spaces they occupy are designed in pursuit of this, the patient health journey is markedly more successful.

Join us as we explore designing to support the patient by supporting family and others throughout healthcare settings, establishing a foundation for patient and family involvement.
