Emergency Department Design
Combine design and process to create high performing emergency departments.
Whether you are involved in designing your own facility or just want to learn more about the process, the Emergency Department Design Course will prepare you for all the challenges you may face.
Taught since 2013, this two-day course explores how design meets process to create successful, well-run emergency departments. The course holds active discussions among medical, administrative, and architectural professionals on contemporary thinking about designs that promote engagement with the patient, patient safety and comfort, and a high degree of efficiency. Case studies of effective ED design will be explored and attendees will complete a group project to put concept into practice.
“The IEDLI Designing Tomorrow’s Emergency Department (ED Design) Course, Madrid, Spain 11/11/2023 – 12/11/2023, has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 10.5 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.”
“Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at https://edhub.ama-assn.org/pages/applictations .
“Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.”
