FinalitÓ e contenuti
The course offers its participants a novel way of renewing knowledge on healthcare systems and care delivery which is critical when competing in markets covering the demands of future healthcare consumers. Into two week framework, the course will deliver concept designs which address neighbourhood-based health services spanning all levels of intensity of care.

Starting from the analysis of case studies of international interest, such as the Medical neighbourhood of NORD Architects in Berlin, the course aims to provide evidence-based design indications for the layout for this kind of healthcare facilities, addressed to all types of decision-makers involved in architecture for health. Design outcomes will be shared, reviewed and published in partnership with Technische Universitńt Berlin, with the supervision of architect Alvaro Valera Sosa.

In an effort to attain stronger sustainable healthcare systems, designing a Medical Neighbourhood encourages participants to understand and analyse components and networks' neighbourhoods as the possible setting for patient-centred and out-of-hospital care to take place. "Medical Neighbourhood" is defined as a "multipurpose facility capable of delivering in the same physical space of the overall performance of social care by fostering, through the contiguous spaces of services and operators, the unity and integration of essential levels of social services and Primary Health Care".

Medical Neighbourhood it's addressed to:

(1) the need to establish better connections and communication between patients and other health services, beyond the patient-physician relationship, such as (a) disease management protocols (including health promotion & disease prevention) and (b) health outlets as for example pharmacies or patient-centred medical homes;

(2) neighbourhood environment assessment to analyse availability, access and perceived quality of actual health services and technologies in all levels of care;

(3) population health status and trends;

(4) the feasibility of implementing a neighbourhood-based continuum of care using actual and projected medical technologies;

(5) the importance of developing neighbourhood environments beyond medical care that support health-related behaviours such as healthy eating, physical activity and positive social encounters.
