Getting It Right First Time, For Patients
A challenge for leadership, learning and integrated project delivery. We all know that healthcare facilities are complex and expensive to plan, design, build and maintain.
Infrastructure projects need input from a huge range of people – managers, designers, engineers, clinicians, technicians, estates professionals and patients – if they are going to be a success, and no one wants to finish a project only to find that it doesn’t meet the needs of staff or patients, or both.
questions we will be exploring
So how do we ‘get it right, first time, for patients? How do we ensure that new build or rebuilt or reconfigured facilities meet the original brief in terms of utility, design and sustainable affordability? How can we do our very best to make our healthcare built environment the best place possible for patients?
An opportunity to engage with individuals & organisations, representative of every aspect of health infrastructure development.
Participants typically represent a wide variety of professional backgrounds: health policy makers, healthcare architects and engineers, health system planners, clinical/medical professionals, capital investment experts, health infrastructure academic researchers, and many others.
The annual EuHPN workshop is structured to give our member organisations an opportunity to share examples of best practice and to learn from each other's experiences. But the workshop is also an important opportunity for participants to hear from outside our immediate network and from a range of professionals who bring different perspectives.
This year we will experiment with a highly interactive format where participants will co-create an infrastructure design or a patient experience together with healthcare professionals. This is thanks to the support of Walkerproject, one of Europe’s leading consultancies for innovation in healthcare. Walkerproject works closely with healthcare professionals to improve patient experience, quality of care and team collaboration.
