I ran across this cool interactive guideline for patient rooms (including med surg, ICU and maternity) on the Center for Health Design’s site

It offers evidence based design strategies for elements in the room based on the desirable outcomes of users (for example how walls can both reduce patient stress and anxiety and improve job satisfaction).

Seasoned healthcare designers obviously already incorporate a lot of these, but the graphics and site navigation is really quite nice.  It makes me think about how we can use graphics and tools like this to develop architecture with users new to the design process.
