Mind the Gap: integrating human factors & ergonomics into health and social care
Human Factors & Ergonomics (HFE) in health and social care is rapidly gathering interest and momentum regionally, nationally and internationally. The purpose of the HFE Community of Practice (COP) is to bring together people from across the region who share a passion for HFE and who have a desire to develop its use in practice. It is intended to be a forum where enthusiasts can learn together, share knowledge, experience and resources and to build confidence in HFE.
Through the event, the North East and North Cumbria HFE COP would like to showcase HFE examples, and encourage organisations, teams and individuals to share their HFE stories of success and learning so that delegates can take away ideas, inspiration and an increased confidence of how integrating HFE into health and social care may improve patient and staff safety and experience in their own organisation.
