Australian Health Design Council Events take on a wide variety of formats, generally featuring guest presentations, discussion and Q&A on topics relevant to architects and building design professionals involved in the design of healthcare and related environments. Each session is 1 hour in length and followed by informal discussion and networking opportunities. Presenters and hosts are carefully selected for their knowledge and expertise in healthcare design, delivery and project management. Post-event questionnaires are circulated to attendees to evaluate the quality of the presentation and collect on-going feedback.
