Healthcare Design 5.0 - The Future of Healthcare Design, NOW

Wayne Ruga, PhD, FAIA, FIIDA, Hon. FASID
Founder and President, The CARITAS Project

Healthcare Design 5.0 is a launching pad into the future.  It focuses beyond the horizons of the previous generations of healthcare design to clearly articulate new, and very practical, ways forward.  Have you   ever wondered: ‘How can I get ‘out-of-the-box’ and raise the bar on creating higher performing and more effective environments for health and healthcare?’  If you have, then investing an hour in participating in this program could be the golden opportunity you’ve been hoping for. 


This is a unique invitation to expand our vision and survey the future, from the summit of the highest mountaintop – viewing great distances into the future and the complete 360-degree panorama – providing sightings of emerging opportunities for courageous trail blazers and aspiring leaders of our new futures to profoundly improve the mainstream practices in health, healthcare, and design.


In this interactive and participatory, experiential workshop, we will peer into the crystal ball and engage together as we discover new possibilities and explore their relevance, impact, feasibility, and practical value. 


1:  Learn how to identify and describe the previous four generations of healthcare design.
2:  Learn how to articulate and describe the new generation of healthcare design with its benefits.
3:  Learn practical applications of Healthcare Design 5.0 for immediate implementation.
4:  Learn how to apply Healthcare Design 5.0 innovations within their own, respective, contexts.
