School of Interior Design professor Allison White and instructor Lindsey Guinther will speak at the Healthcare Design conference in Phoenix about the current Post Occupancy Evaulation (POE) taking place at the UK Healthcare Emergency Department.
Along with architect David Humlong and senior medical planner Jim Harrell of GBBN Architects, Professors White and Guinther will discuss how well the Emergency Department is coping with patient volume, how well the design meets the users' needs, and how the users have adapted their work patterns. The study will then identify ways to improve design to create better buildings in the future and illustrate how the environmental quality of spaces impacts care delivery.
