About the seminar:
Effective color design in healthcare, aged care and dementia care has moved beyond aesthetics. In the past, color design strategies focused on creating environments that were engaging, harmonious and practical, either in relation to people living in or visiting healthcare environments but more often in relation to key stakeholders or decision-makers. While color design strategies continue to focus on encouraging engagement, this is now just a starting point.
In healthcare, aged care and dementia care, evidence-based color design strategies help to achieve key aims: (1) Address the variable vision capacity and visual challenges experienced by the population in general and in particular older people and people living with dementia. (2) Enhance environmental visual literacy and help improve orientation, wayfinding, and the safe operation of daily activities. (3) Ensure that color design strategies are underpinned by the imperatives of inclusivity, diversity and user centred involvement in decision-making and respect for all people using healthcare environments and especially older people and people living with dementia. This evidence-based seminar is presented by Dr Zena O'Connor.
