Family-Centered Cancer Care Simulation Lab:
Supporting the transition from research to community application
Date: September 2016, (Information Coming Soon)
Time: 5:30 - 6:30 pm Networking Reception | 6:30 - 7:30 pm Discussion
Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Pediatric Oncology Simulation Lab will be set inside a mock-up of an inpatient pediatric oncology space. This environment will enable participants to experience, identify and discuss the challenges that users face within the space, and brainstorm on design solutions to address such needs. Facilitated by patients, families, healthcare providers, health facilities managers and academic researchers, participants will receive a comprehensive overview of the design considerations of an oncology space.
