    Impact of Visual Art on Emergency Waiting Rooms

    “Findings from a systematic observation of waiting behavior showed that an evidence-based positive distraction can impact reduce restlessness, which could be an indicator of patient anxiety and stress; decrease people watching, which has privacy implications; and increase socialization, which could impact social support. Reduction in noise levels can be achieved through both a reduction in ambient noise levels and as a behavioral outcome of reduced anxiety. This study suggests that including a simple visual art intervention, that is carefully selected based on best available evidence, can not only impact patient (and visitor) behavior, but also the overall healthcare experience.” LINK
