Jane Repin Carthey is an architect, researcher and most recently a blogger. Her most recent experience on healthcare projects includes the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, Christchurch Hospital New ASB in New Zealand and the Westmead Project in NSW. Jane is the founder of the Australian Health Design Council which she established to share knowledge with all those interested in healthcare design. She has recently completed a Doctorate program in Creative Industries at QUT. Her research looked at how to improve the user group process for Australian and New Zealand healthcare projects.
Sharing research about health facility design with industry colleagues was one of the main reasons that the Australian Health Design Council (AHDC) was set up in 2012 by Jane Carthey and others. AHDC now has a well-established program of regular events for our members sharing health design innovations, evidence and experience. So it’s now time for us to go further in delivering value to our members. We invite you to view this blog regularly, and to contribute your experience and expertise wherever and whenever you can from time to time. This is a new and exciting journey for the AHDC and we invite you to join us on it.
