It's been established that the best results in workspace design are achieved when the end users (clinicians) drive that design.
Emergency Department Design: A Practical Guide to Planning for the Future will help you understand the design and planning process so that you and other caregivers can make decisions about what’s best for your department, your patients, and your community. Whether you’re building a new department, remodeling an existing one, expanding, or simply adding a new service, the critical decisions you’ll make must be based on an understanding of the design process. Includes case studies and "pearls and pitfalls" from more than 20 emergency physicians, nurses, administrators, and architects.

Emergency physicians, nurses, and architects agree—it’s the one resource you’ll need to help you design your emergency department. 

"This book is a must for those even contemplating a project. The descriptions of planning and process, easily reproducible checklists, an early focus on the critical need for medical director leadership, as well as its overall straightforward delivery of valuable information, make this book essential." —Annals of Emergency Medicine, May 2003.
