A Design Research Strategy Utilizing Simulated Health Care Procedures in an Environmental Mock-Up Unit

Jan 01, 1972

This paper describes an overall eclectic approach to providing procedural and environmental design information for a specific specialized facility. For reasons which may to some extent be unique to our study area the use of an environmental mock-up unit together with use simulation has provided and promises to further provide important contributions to both our understanding of and ability to communicate findings related to Coronary Care to hospital officials and architects facing the design of these facilities. Value of the technique relative to effort expended was considered to be excellent.
