Healthy Living Centres: A Guide to Primary Health Care Design
By exploring the design process this book looks at the relationship between the architectural and medical professions to see how the next wave of Government health policies can be best provided for. The aim is to raise the quality of health buildings in the primary care sector.
Greater flexibility will be required as the medical profession moves towards a pro-active attitude to Healthy Living Centres rather than the traditional reactive treatment to cure disease.
This is a hands-on 'how to do it' guide to satisfy changing policy objectives, offering an up to date methodology to encourage a holistic approach to health care buildings which will be of interest to both architectural and medical professionals.
* Gain comprehensive technical coverage of primary health care planning & design
* Learn about the approach taken by designers through international examples and illustrations and inspire your own designs
* Explore the relationship between the architectural and medical professions and learn how best to provide for both the designer and the client
