Futurecare: New Directions in Planning Health and Care Environments
Health care in the developed world is in the throws of radical change. Primary health care is having to become more cost effective, large scale hospitals may become a thing of the past and the increasing needs of a growing population will need to be catered for. These are just a few of the issues. Health and care planners, together with architects and designers, need to ensure that what they plan for today will not be redundant in the near future. This book looks at development and design needs across the whole range of health and care facilities.
