There is a global public debate going on about care for the elderly and the dying, and what is meant by good quality palliative care. This book begins with the rise of the modern hospice movement, begun in 1967. Today there are 8,500 modern hospice projects in 123 countries. The hospice has become an iconic building for this new culture. This is not a book about hospitals as such, but about what lessons the hospice movement has for new ideas about buildings for healthcare across the world. For architects and interior designers, estate and facility managers involved in hospice design, healthcare professionals, hospital administrators and Heathcare Trust Boards.

This book reports on the state of the art in physical ergonomics and addresses the design of products, processes, services, and work systems to ensure they are productive, safe, and enjoyable for people to use. The human body’s responses to physical and physiological work demands, strain injuries from repetition, vibration, force, and posture are the most common types of issues examined, along with their design implications. The book explores a wide range of topics in physical ergonomics, including the consequences of repetitive motion, materials handling, workplace safety, the usability of portable devices, design, working postures, and the work environment. Mastering physical ergonomics and safety engineering concepts is fundamental to creating products and systems that people can safely and conveniently use, as well as avoiding stresses and minimizing the risk of accidents. Based on the AHFE 2019 Conference on Physical Ergonomics and Human Factors, held on July 24-28, 2019, in Washington D.C., USA, this book provides readers with a comprehensive perspective on the current challenges in physical ergonomics, which is a critical aspect in the design of any human-centered technological system, and for factors influencing human performance.

This fully revised, new edition of Innovations in Hospice Architecture responds to the need for an up-to-date, theoretically based reference book summarizing key historical and recent developments with respect to this rapidly evolving building type. This Second Edition presents: an overview of the historical origins of the contemporary hospice the diverse variations on the basic premise of hospice care a review of the scant architectural literature published on this subject to date a broad series of case studies of exemplary hospices around the world planning and design concepts for palliative care environments. Case study projects are from Japan, Canada, Europe, Africa, Australia, Indonesia, China, the United States and South America. Thirty-six case studies are individually presented and comparatively analysed, and prognostications for the future of hospice architecture are examined. Each case includes floor plans, technical drawings and beautiful, full colour illustrations. Through an in-depth discussion of the inner profundities of hospice architecture, the book presents this type as a humane, genuine expression of the spiritual, physical and psychosocial dimensions of the contemporary death and dying movement. Written with a broad audience in mind, the book provides both technical and conceptual information, blending narrative, images and diagrammation so that the audience may understand and articulate the complexities of this specialized building type in professional practice contexts.

The Production of Hospice Space

"Place of death" has always been significant.

"Place of death" has always been significant. Culturally, politically, socially and practically, the place of death is fraught with complex relationships, practices and pressures. The most common place of death in contemporary western society is the hospital, hospice, nursing home and home. Yet, despite these multiple settings for dying, the only place that really considers dying as an important function, inherent to the design, is the hospice. And so the study of the hospice can reveal spatial attributes applicable to the design of other settings where death and dying is supported as an open and normal part of living.
