We all need
solutions and strategies to better orientate
us, especially in unfamiliar or complex spaces.
Wayfinding for Healthcare Facilities caters
to this need for universal accessibility in the
design of healthcare facilities by reducing
the focus of signage and providing a broader
perspective and approach.
It centres on
ensuring the design and management of
wayfinding in healthcare facilities keeps the
user in mind at all times, provides a framework
for understanding good wayfinding practice,
describes a holistic approach in which
wayfinding is considered across its full
spectrum, and provides a step-by-step guide
to effective wayfinding.
It is intended to inform those designing and
managing healthcare facilities about the full
scope of wayfinding and key considerations that
need to be made throughout the entire process.
