Session Description

When embarking on the design of their first ambulatory hub dedicated to being a Center of Distinction for Oncology and Advanced Women’s Services, one leading Midwest healthcare organization knew that they wanted to utilize an evidence-based design approach. Lessons learned from their journey of integrating research into practice will be discussed. This interactive session will also explore the challenges and benefits of integrating research into practice and how to leverage the touchstone framework as a guide. Insights on how to navigate the complexities of diverse stakeholder needs to ensure research is incorporated throughout the design process will also be discussed.
