One of our goals is to
promote the practical application of research findings within the field
to the benefit of society as a whole.
This requires collaboration with non-commercial organisations, including government and non-governmental organisations, public providers, not for profit bodies, professional associations, trade organisations across the range of its education, research, advocacy, media and events activities.
This work also requires
close co-operation with private industry, including architectural and
design firms, health planners, developers, engineers, surveyors and
suppliers of products and medical technologies.
Many of these firms
choose to partner with us as corporate members, playing a critical role
in the work of the community, and providing input from their respective
industries in terms of healthcare trends, as well as evaluation and
feedback into research into the performance of their products and
solutions within the designed environment.
