Giving voice to loved ones: Using photo-voice as a data collection method in ICU
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a place of care for the most critically ill patients. The ICU rooms are considered to be one of the most complicated rooms to design. Providing successful intensive care requires that human, technologies and spatial resources are integrated in a rigorous way. Research shows that being a patient or next-of-kin in ICU is a traumatic experience not only because of the illness but also because of one’s human existence is threatened. Literature suggests that the presence of next-of-kin and the design of ICU affect the patients’ recovery and wellbeing.
