    Those who are advancing the most successful person-centered care approaches assert that organizational, operational, and financial strategies must accompany environmental changes.  If not, there will be an inherent misfit in the daily life for staff, residents, and the organization. Employing a post-occupancy evaluation for evaluating current environments is an efficient and effective way to assess the congruity between design and practice in relation to the feasibility and appropriateness of desired outcomes. Presenters will discuss critical steps in a POE process and provide concrete examples of documentation techniques that can provide evidence-based information to guide future decisions. 

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the three types of a POE and which one to employ given the resources available. 
    • Identify strategies for collecting and documenting observable data in a POE process. 
    • Understand how to use a POE framework to comparatively assess three dimensions of a senior-care setting: environmental, organizational, and operational. 
    • Identify future design criteria that can be informed through the POE process.
