The Team Substations study is the third of six research studies being conducted as part of the Centre’s bold Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) project.
Physical layout, visibility, and accessibility are the most cited aspects of a building’s design that can affect communication and teamwork in healthcare facilities.
Before and after the new West Park hospital is built, the study will evaluate how the introduction of team substations in the new hospital is expected to impact staff workflows.
Pre- and Post-Occupancy Research Activities
The pre-occupancy (pre-construction) phase of the Team Substations study is now closed. To determine the potential impact of the team substations in the new hospital, user feedback was collected from West Park clinicians.
The post-occupancy (post-construction) phase of the Team Substations study is planned for 2024-2025. The new West Park hospital will be assessed to measure how team substations will impact staff workflows.
Feedback on the West Park experience in the current hospital has now been collected. Feedback on the new hospital will be collected when the new facility is built (planned for 2024-2025). West Park patients, family/friends and staff are strongly encouraged to participate in the Team Substations or other POE feedback studies.
