    Aimed at Clinicians and Managers, this national virtual conference will provide a practical guide to human factors in healthcare, and how a human factors approach can improve patient care, quality, process and safety.
    This conference will enable you to:
    Network with colleagues who are working to embed a human factors approach. Learn from outstanding practice in using human factors and ergonomics to improve patient safety and quality. Reflect on national developments and learning. Understand the tools and methodology. Develop your skills in training and educating frontline staff in human factors. Reflect on how an understanding of human factors can change both culture and practice. Understand how you can improve patient safety incident by using a human factors approach.  Learn from case studies demonstrating the practical application of human factors to improve patient care. Self assess and reflect on your own practice. Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence. Patient Safety Learning, Chief Exec, Helen Hughes will be giving a presentation on using a human factors approach to improve patient safety.

    Professor Pascale Carayon, the author of the Systems Engineering Initiative for Patient Safety (SEIPS), will talk about the development, history and use of SEIPS in healthcare.

    SEIPS is one of the most widely recognised and used human factors and ergonomics (HFE) approaches within the field of patient safety. The model is widely used to understand how complex socio-technical systems such as healthcare work.
    SEIPS  places the patient at the centre of the system.  It enables the description of the parts of the system (people, environments, tools, tasks, processes and outcomes), and how these interact to create safety, efficiency and effectiveness.
    SEIPS can also be used by practitioners to identify the deficiencies in a healthcare system which impact the ability to deliver high quality and safe care. SEIPS can also be used to contribute to the design of systems and processes.

    This event will focus on the practical application of SEIPS within healthcare and speakers include:
    Prof. Pascale Carayon - The SEIPS journey - developing, expanding and deepening the model Chris Hicks and Andrew Petrosoniak - St Michaels Hospitals Toronto - How simulation can break the shackles of bad design Gill Smith - Kaizen Kata - The effectiveness of SEIPS during Covid19 in ICU Jonathan Back - HSIB's Safety Incident Research database Prof. Tom Reader - University of Nottingham Prof. Richard Holden - Indiana University School of Public Health Register
