Abstract

It goes without saying that studies in evidence-based medicine should lead to clear and convincing evidence of the effectiveness of treatments. But can this approach be extrapolated to other research areas; for instance, where medicine connects with other scientific disciplines, such as hospital architecture? Although the link between a hospital building and patient treatment seems very remote, several studies indicate that there is more to it than one would expect at first sight. These studies address the impact of hospital design on the healing process and reduction of medication.
