    The webinar starts with an introduction to the concept of near misses in healthcare and the challenges faced in learning from these near misses to improve safety. You will then hear how near misses are approached in rail and nuclear and how controls are developed in their processes. You will: Gain valuable insights from all three sectors: healthcare, rail and nuclear.Hear discussion about defining near misses with respect to controls.Learn how to build barriers in systems.

    This free webinar will explore near misses in three different sectors and how controls can, or cannot, be developed to prevent future events. It will start with an introduction to the concept of near misses in healthcare and the challenges faced in learning from these near misses to improve safety. You will then hear how near misses are approached in rail and nuclear and how controls are developed in their processes. At this event, you’ll: Gain valuable insights from all three sectors: healthcare, rail and nuclear. Hear discussion about defining near misses with respect

    The white paper is based around nine principles. Their aim is to provide an easy-to-follow guide to human factors issues which need to be addressed when developing and implementing highly automated systems. The principles are: Understand the potential influence of other elements of the system on the automated components, as well as how the introduction of automation can affect those components. Automation must be seen in the context of the overall socio-technical system it exists in. Recognise that automation nearly always changes, rather than removes, the role of people in a sys

    At Patient Safety Learning we believe that to reduce avoidable harm in healthcare we need a transformation in our approach to patient safety. Patient safety should not be treated as one of several strategic priorities, but instead as a core purpose of health and social care. This requires us not just to respond to, and mitigate the risk of, harm, but also to design healthcare to be safe for patients and the staff who work within it. This approach extends to how we source, supply and monitor the use of healthcare equipment and products. Procurement and supply chains can be complex and may

    This article discusses eight human factors and ergonomics principles for healthcare AI, drawn from a white paper published by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors: Situation awareness - Design options need to consider how AI can support, rather than erode, people’s situation awareness. Workload - The impact of AI on workload needs to be assessed because AI can both reduce as well as increase workload in certain situations. Automation bias - Strategies need to be considered to guard against people relying uncritically on the AI, for example, the use of exp

    Why should I take this course? We believe that every healthcare and social care organisation should have ‘in-house’ knowledge in Human Factors. However, rather than having to return to university to take a postgraduate degree, the Learning Pathway offers an online work-based route to accredited Technical Specialist (Healthcare) status with the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors (CIEHF). How is it structured? There are three levels, with Level 1 free to NHS staff in England and Wales via Health Education England (HEE) and in Scotland via NHS Education for Scotlan

    Two vaccines for COVID-19 have now been approved. Health organisations are doing their upmost to workout how best to store and administer the vaccines safely and avoiding errors. The Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF) are preparing strategic guidance for health authorities and operational guidance for people setting up vaccine programmes applicable internationally. In a recent LinkedIn post, Chief Executive Noorzaman Rashid asks: "What are the Human Factors and Ergonomic issues that should be considered?" And asks you to share your ideas: https://www.linke

    In this book, Atul Gawande makes a compelling argument for the checklist, which he believes to be the most promising method available in surmounting failure. Whether you're following a recipe, investing millions of dollars in a company or building a skyscraper, the checklist is an essential tool in virtually every area of our lives and Gawande explains how breaking down complex, high pressure tasks into small steps can radically improve everything from airline safety to heart surgery survival rates.

    Coping with complexity: how a human factors systems approach can support competency development for pharmacists. Support in clinical decision making is recognised as an educational development need for pharmacists. The health policy landscape puts the pharmacist in a central role for clinical management of long-term complex morbidities, making clinical decision making and taking responsibility for patient outcomes increasingly important. This is compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic, where healthcare environments have become more complex and challenging to navigate. In this environment

    Patient Safety is an essential part of health and social care that aims to reduce avoidable errors and prevent unintended harm. Human Factors looks at the things that can affect the way people work safely and effectively, such as the optimisation of systems and processes, the design of equipment and devices used and the surrounding environment and culture, all of which are key to providing safer, high quality care. New for September 2020, this part-time, three year, distance learning course, from the Centre of Excellence Stafford, focuses specifically on Human Factors within the Health an
