This new Task Force, led by Elke Miedema PhD, will collect, select, and share knowledge and experience on building design for Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Services. Thus, the design of buildings for healthcare which stimulates the health of patients, staff, relatives, communities and the planet, besides the traditional curative practices. The group will work to understand how health promotion is related to building design and how the design of healthcare buildings can support the incorporation of health promotion in hospitals and healthcare.
