Healthcare Facility Planning Course November 2023
The Health Facility Planning Course will introduce the specialised aspects of Health Facility Planning. This course is intended for professionals who are already experienced in related industries but lack the specialised knowledge required for healthcare planning design.
Healthcare Facilities Planning will provide an overview instruction to use evidence-based research to improve a healthcare environment, master how to handle change leadership, stakeholder management, and strategic alignment with organisational goals when planning and designing your healthcare facilities.
The presentations are designed to offer relevant and up-to-date information to assist all those involved in working in Health Facilities or Health Services in remaining competitive, knowledgeable and an expert in the field.
The medical basis for the concept categories is introduced along with design and construction strategies to create healthy buildings.
The time has come to elevate human health and comfort to the forefront of building practices and reinvent buildings that are not only better for the planet—but also for people.

This course is particularly suited to General Practice Architects and Engineers who wish to be become experienced in the design of Healthcare Facilities. It will also benefit Consultants who have been designing hospitals but without any formal training or correct orientation (effectively learning on the job). The course will also benefit Equipment Planners who frequently engage in the design of healthcare facilities only to accommodate the equipment. They do so without the thorough knowledge of other aspects of Health Facility Planning. This course will provide the strong foundations required to do this task properly. Similarly, this course will benefit Hospital Facilities Managers who carry out their own in-house refurbishments, upgrades and minor extensions.
