Healthcare facilities, hospitals, small cities in enclosed spaces; people working, people recovering; babies being born, people dying. Is it really possible to build a place that supports all these different activities? Mai-Britt Beldam explores.
21st century health district
Healthcare is undergoing significant transformations to address demographic, economic and regulatory changes. In the UK and the USA, the relationship between the medical campus and the city/towns is being reevaluated. This talk shows how health districts can: 1) set, track, evaluate and foster better planning tools for public health, 2) create a framework for a more connected, walkable and adaptable urban environment, and 3) build a platform for collaboration between health-service providers.
Can healthcare heal our communities and the planet?
The delivery of care in healthcare facilities results in an ever-increasing environmental footprint, which contributes to damaging the health of the community it seeks to serve. This keynote address examines this contradictory connection between healthcare and environmental health, and explores what can be done to realign the relationship in a positive direction.
