Professor Wil Gesler: Humanising hospital design

5th March 2009, 18:15, Room 231, Elvet Riverside

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE to 5 MARCH from 12 MARCH.

This is the sixth seminar in Humanising Practice Seminar Series.

Research into and assessment of the influence of hospital design features on the well-being of users and staff has mainly focused on clinical goals and physical environments. A study by a team of health geographers of an acute mental health care unit in East London shifts the focus toward non-clinical goals and both social and symbolic environments.
