Health Facility Planning Courses

Health Facility Planning is pleased to announce the dates for courses in 2011. These are:

  1. Introduction to Planning Health Buildings Tues 26 – Fri 29 July 2011 
  2. Hospital Planning Tues 13 – Fri 16 Sept 2011 
  3. The Planning of ICU and Theatres Tues  1 – Fri 4 Nov 2011          

Each course is CESA and SAIA CPD accredited.

The courses are targeted at health planners, managers, nurses, doctors, architects and engineers, or anyone else from the public or private sectors actively involved or wanting to become involved in health facility planning, design and management. The courses aim to provide a structured introduction to health facility planning, design and management through a series of graded short courses. While each course is planned to build on the preceding course, delegates may select one or more and attend in the order that fits their requirements.

Major strengths of the courses include:

  • A multi-disciplinary mix of delegates from all parts of the country  enabling delegates to learn from each other in structured interactive sessions that complement formal lectures,
  • A broad based team of lecturers and facilitators, each experienced and an expert in their specific field. Each course has between 12 -15 lecturers, and
  • Visits to nearby health facilities to review planning and design theory put into practice.

Further details are contained in the 2011 HFP Course outline. Should you wish to attend please complete the 2011 HFP Registration form. Attendance is limited to 32 delegates per course to enable individual attention and efficient workgroups. Early booking is recommended to ensure that you secure your place.

If you have attended previously and found value in the courses or if you are not able to attend please pass this on to a colleague who you feel may benefit from attending.

The courses build on the successful framework developed by Renée du Toit and Cathy Houissen. The courses will be hosted and managed in 2011 by Geoff Abbott and the HFP team.

Further information on the courses and online booking may be found on the website or contact Geoff Abbott at
