There is increasing recognition of the need to embed human factors science into the design of healthcare systems and processes. The Commission on Education and Training for Patient Safety report ‘Improving safety through education and training,’ recommended that the principles of human factors must be embedded into the training of healthcare professionals.
So what do we mean by human factors science? How can we apply human factors methods and principles to create safer healthcare systems? What is the evidence base that applying human factors design principles improves patient safety? How can we enhance the non-technical skills of healthcare teams? How can Leaders for Improvement embed human factors thinking in their own organisations?
Come along and learn what we mean by human factors science and how to apply human factors thinking in practice, facilitated by Dr Jane Carthey, Human Factors and Patient Safety Consultant.
