RACIAL JUSTICE IN HEALTHCARE
August 10 - 11, 2020
How might we ensure that healthcare design and practice is attentive to the race-related challenges faced by clinicians, community health professionals, and their communities so that we promote racial justice in healthcare outcomes?
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
At the workshop, participants work with a small team of 5 to 10 people optimized for collaboration. We have well-designed activities to keep everyone engaged, contributing, and learning from each other.
PLATFORM FOR INNOVATION
We use human-centered design and process improvement techniques within these small groups. Participants are challenged throughout the process, but quickly learn that the group will provide excellent support.
FOCUSED ON IMPACT
Reimaginging workshops are designed so that participants can both imagine a better future and make real changes in the present. Participants use the deep learning and insights gleaned in the workshops and consider the relevant application to the FGI Guidelines. The result -- potential changes to the Guidelines are identified and submitted for review. Since the Guidelines impact the design of healthcare spaces, workshop participants are afforded the opportunity to influence future innovations in healthcare while also potentially impacting requirements for the design of healthcare spaces.
The workshops attract leading clinicians and healthcare designers who are challenging status quo and inspiring others to participate in creating a better future. Most recently, Dr. Neel Shah, MD, MPP, Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Delivery Decisions Initiative at Harvard’s Ariadne Labs, participated in the “Reimagining Childbirth Facilities” workshop. He’s listed among Becker’s Hospital Review’s “40 smartest people in health care,” and has been profiled by the New York Times, CNN, and several other media outlets.
