Care; the congress

Quite a lot of research has been done on the influence of spatial conditions and design to healing and well-being. In the Netherlands recently some bespoke hospital and care concepts have been developed, in which perception of patients as guests or residents is central. This congress aims at stakeholders and decision makers in the care industry and debates success and fail factors in healing environments, the importance of evidence based design and the results of recent design research will be presented. The congress is additional to the traveling exposition and publication on the subject.
