Environmental Assessment Tool – Acute Care (EAT-AC Handbook)
Note: This is resource 7 of 7 – Environmental Design Resources Handbook
This new handbook is designed to be used in acute health care settings where patients stay for up to a week. It is centred around the Environmental Assessment Tool – Acute Care (EAT-AC) and provides information about how to systematically review and create better environments for people living with dementia in acute health care settings.
There are five parts in the handbook.
• Part 1 ‘Key Design Principles’
• Part 2 ‘An Acute Health Care Literature Review’
• Part 3 ‘Environmental Assessment Tool – Acute Care’
• Part 4 ‘Using the spreadsheet’
• Part 5 ‘Applying the Principles’
Our free BEAT-D App (Built Environment Assessment Tool – Dementia) will guide you through an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of buildings used to accommodate people with dementia.
