Healing Through Nature

Facilitating nature contact in the healthcare environment

Nature has psychological and physiological benefits for people. Patients and hospital staff benefit from healthcare environments that incorporate nature in their design, ranging from hospital gardens and indoor plants to Virtual Reality nature. In this session we will share knowledge from the field of environmental psychology which demonstrates that contact with nature reduces stress, increases pain tolerance and in some cases it can even shorten hospital stay. This knowledge can be used to design healthy healthcare environments.
