Would Healthcare Consumers Find “A Visual Reference for Evidence-Based Design” Interesting?
Everybody has a story, as I say in the book’s introduction (“A Visual Reference for Evidence-Based Design”), of a tragedy that happened to them, a family member or a friend who had a bad experience whether it is a hospital-acquired infection, a medical error—a whole host of things.
So, yes, were they to find the book, it’s something that any intelligent person could read. Everybody is interested in healthcare because it affects us all. I realize, however, that some people aren’t interested in thinking about these things until they actually have to, but the book is written in a way that makes the material accessible and it’s not difficult reading.
