    Recommendations Design 1. Design of medical equipment should include input from human factors experts at an early stage. The medical equipment procurement process should include human factors assessments. 2. Design of drug ampoules and packaging should incorporate human factors principles to optimise readability and reduce the risk of mis-selection: anaesthetists, pharmacists and procurement departments should ensure that these principles are prioritised during their purchasing processes. 3. Design of safe working environments should incorporate human factors principles. Regular reviews should be carried out to ensure that safety has not been compromised. Barriers 4. Operating theatre list planning and scheduling should include additional time allocated for complex cases and for high turnover lists to enable adequate preparation and reduce time pressures on staff. 5. Cognitive aids, including algorithms and checklists, should be designed and tested using human factors principles to ensure usability and efficacy. 6. Non-technical skills can be learned and developed, and should be practised during everyday work to ensure that staff become skilled in their use and are able to use them effectively. Mitigations 7. Investigation of critical incidents and adverse events should be performed by teams that include members with human factors training using a human factors investigative tool. Lessons identified should be shared. 8. Morbidity and mortality meetings should be part of the regular work of all anaesthetic departments and should also include learning from cases that go well. Time within job plans should be allocated to enable staff to prepare for and attend these meetings. Education and training 9. Human factors education and training should be provided at an appropriate level for all anaesthetists and all members of operating theatre teams. It should include the role of good design in healthcare, an appreciation of a systems perspective, the importance of non-technical skills and strategies to improve these. 10. Non-technical skills training and interprofessional simulation training: Teams that work together should train together. Non-technical skills should be learned during classroom and in-theatre teaching, woven into all anaesthetic workshops and courses and rehearsed during regular interprofessional simulation training. Time and resources should be allocated to allow for this. Wellbeing 11. Staff wellbeing should be optimised by hospitals and anaesthetic departments by implementing organisational strategies. Strategy 12. Each anaesthetic department should have a human factors lead with an appropriate level of training. Every hospital should have patient safety leads with appropriate training and qualifications; in England, this is already included in Health Education England recommendations.

    GPs are leaving UK practice over workplace incidents rather than due to falling ‘out of love’ with the profession, the General Medical Council (GMC) has warned. Speaking to the NHS Providers conference (16 November), chief executive Charlie Massey said that many specialty and associate specialist (SAS) and locally employed (LE) doctors feel their careers are being ‘curtailed’ and that they ‘can’t tolerate the environments’ in which they work. He cited new GMC research into doctors’ migration which identified poor workplace conditions and ‘negative experiences with colleagues’ as a ‘far more impactful’ as a trigger compared to poor experiences with patients. According to the research, bullying at work, lack of respect from line managers and experiences of favouritism ‘provided the nudge for them to consider making a change and migrating abroad’. Mr Massey said: "This is a senseless waste of talent, not least because these issues are preventable. With a focus on compassionate, supportive cultures, they can be put right. This will not only improve doctors’ wellbeing, but also their productivity. Happier workers are better workers, and they deliver better results."

    1. At the start of a shift, day or week make sure you check in with everyone. This is a good chance for everyone to understand what’s happening, to raise concerns and to check everyone is ok. Check out the great 'Start Well End Well' work from North Bristol NHS Trust. 2. For virtual teams try a quick online catch up at the start of the week to ensure everyone is up to speed on the weeks' work and issues or challenges. Make sure you ask if people are ok? It's worth Asking Twice: “ Are we sure we are all ok?” 3. Start your own day well. Make the first email you send a positive one. Pick a colleague and let them know what you enjoy about working with them or thank them for a great piece of work. 4. Don’t finish on a down note. Check out the going home checklist, reflect on what’s gone well. Think about what has been achieved (not just what is left to be done). 5. A great way to finish the week is with #High5Friday a chance to reflect on the week and share on Twitter. Some teams use an MS Team channel to reflect on the highlights of the week. A great way of virtual teams keeping in touch and sharing achievements.
