Introduction to Human Factors in Healthcare (Cohort 23)

Human Factors are recognised as an essential part of patient safety and a significant contributor to adverse events in healthcare. They encompass all the factors (environmental, organisational and job factors, and individual characteristics) that can influence behaviour at work.


Aim:

This workshop aims to give you an understanding and appreciation of how human factors awareness can create a safer place for patients and a more productive environment for healthcare workers.

This training is suitable for those new to Human Factors as well as those who would like to refresh their existing knowledge.


Outcomes:

By the end of the day you will have a greater understanding of:

  • The principles of Human Factors and why errors occur
  • The relevance of Human Factors to the improvement of quality and safety in healthcare
  • Human Factors as a 'way of thinking' about every day work and how it relates to patient care
  • How to identify potential Human Factor errors and ways to mitigate them to improve patient safety in your own areas
