Charrettes for Healthcare Planning recorded webinar is now available

Charrettes for Healthcare Planning
In this recorded webinar you will learn how charrettes are being used to facilitate a holistic approach to healthcare planning that goes beyond the hospital walls to affect the health of the entire community. In recent decades there has been much research on the links between the built environment and public health. This has led to a growing understanding of the importance of where and how people live, and the effect this can have upon their health and well-being. Conventional approaches to the planning of healthcare facilities have not generally explored the potential for improving the health of their communities other than through the provision of medical services. Organizations that are engaging with their communities in a truly collaborative way will be positioned for increased success as health reform unfolds. Order today!
