Vivien gave an informative presentation on the findings for the ARC Climate Change Project - Assessing the adaptive capacity of hospital facilities to cope with climate related extreme weather events: A risk management approach. The Project Team investigated four existing hospitals in Australia and New Zealand to look at how health facilities can become more resilient to the effects of climate change.

28 October 2010 - Jane Carthey at the Access Economics/ARUP

Jane was on the expert panel at the Do PPP Hospitals Support Long Term Health Service Needs? seminar. Discussions centred on the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model used for procurement in larger health facilities and the impact of PPP from a service and design perspective - and lessons learned from UK hospital projects that are now past mid term. CHAA is involved in project work on flexible and adaptable hospitals around the world and looking at PPP as one of the impacting factors.
