 This session will look at the many ways that design impact hospitals and patient rooms.  The first part of the session will look at the location of interactions among individuals with different roles: namely, at where doctors and other healthcare staff talk with one another in hospital inpatient units. The second part of the session will examine the influence of visibility on teamwork, collaborative communication, and security in emergency departments.  The third part will investigate age-appropriate design attributes and examine the relationships between adolescents’ preferences and cultural backgrounds. The final part will examine a literature review that explores the stresses associated with the ambulatory surgical experience for children and their parents, as well as the coping strategies leveraged by each, extending equal regard to both the child and parent perspectives.
