Optimizing Healing Environments for the Vulnerable and Underserved

On May 8 and 9, 2023, the Canadian Centre for Healthcare Facilities (CCHF) will host a conference at the Burnaby Hotel and Conference Centre in British Columbia.

The CCHF has planned an agenda that shares recent transformations in innovating healing environments across several health environments, including LTC, complex care children/adults, and hospitals.

Sessions will address vulnerable populations in healthcare including ethnic minorities, children, the elderly, the socio-economically disadvantaged, and people with complex care conditions (more than one medical condition).
