    I share more conversations from my time at the European Healthcare Design 2024 Congress. This event brings together professionals worldwide involved in healthcare design to discuss innovative projects, solutions, and concepts to create better healthcare spaces and experiences.
    In this episode, Peter Shenai, a creative strategist from Art In Site, challenges us to rethink hospital environments beyond visual aesthetics. He shares how incorporating auditory, tactile, and olfactory elements can mitigate sensory harms and enhance patient experiences.

Paola's unique approach to visual documentation captures collective intelligence and fosters reflective processes crucial for patient care.
    Finally, Martin Jones, director at Art in Site, shares his vision for designing inclusive sensory hospitals. Martin emphasises balancing tangible data with creativity to design human-centred healthcare spaces. We explore real-life examples, including redesigning stroke patient rooms in Italy and illustrating the interplay between data and experiential evidence.
