Wade Sutton, a Senior Associate in the HASSELL Sydney studio, joined a panel discussion on the design of operating theatres on ABC Radio National's By Design program on Wednesday 15 August.
The panel, hosted by Fenella Kernabone, discussed how operating theatre design is changing to keep pace with rapid technological and clinical advances and how good design also improves the working environment for clinical and nursing staff.
Wade has over 20 years of experience in healthcare planning, design and procurement of complex healthcare environments and offered his perspective on these issues.
Joining him on the panel were Professor Guy Maddern, Surgical Director, Australian Safety and Efficacy Register of New Interventional Procedures in Surgery, Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and Tracy Kerle, Nurse Manager, Gosford Hospital, NSW.
