1:45 PM—2:00 PM Transformative Digital Experiences Within the Healthcare Environment: Design with Intent
Immersive technology, interactive spaces and human centered digital experiences can lead positive change within the healthcare environment as part of the social determinants for health. However, it is crucial to be aware of what is possible, identifying goals, understanding your audience, how to plan for and develop a project, knowing the risks, how to determine success, and where to start.
2:00 PM—2:15 PM A Grove of Aspen Trees: A Community and Nature Focused Approach to Art Therapy and Art Galleries in a Pediatric Healthcare Environment
When a child is hospitalized, his/her natural environment and cycles are disrupted and/or fragmented. To the patient and his or her family, the hospital can seem like a looming technology dependent, impersonal and artificial habitat. This presentation examines the evidence-based benefits of Art therapy and nature- based imagery/artwork to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, and help support the well-being of patients, families and staff.
2:15 PM—2:30 PM Beyond What You See: How involving patients and staff results in more beautiful, healing spaces
Artwork is a major opportunity to make a powerful visual impression on patient experience but is often overlooked. It can inspire, stimulate positive memories and elevate mood. Engaging patients and staff to be part of clinical research, focus groups and advisory teams has informed and, at times, significantly changed the direction of artwork in a facility. We will share project successes and challenges in executing positive artwork experiences.
