An understanding of human factors science is essential for anyone involved in designing healthcare systems and processes. This masterclass is designed to meet national recommendations to embed the principles of human factors science in training for all healthcare professionals. You will learn how to apply human factors methods and principles to create safer healthcare systems, and explore the evidence base for how human factors design principles improve patient safety. Healthcare teams can enhance their non-technical skills by attending this masterclass, and improvement leaders can learn how to embed human factors thinking in their own organisations.
This interactive masterclass is facilitated by Professor Jane Reid and will use case studies, research findings and examples from real-world experience to:
- Help you understand human factors science, what it means and how to apply the thinking in practice.
- Practice applying human factors methods in service improvement work.
- Share good practice to help boards, middle managers and front line healthcare teams understand human factors.
