    How many times have you been to the drug cupboard/trolley at work and looked at it with despair? How many times have you looked at a written prescription or plan of care and were unable to read the writing? How many times have you gone into the storeroom and spent ages looking for what you want as everything looks the same or it has moved to a different spot? These are what we call error traps.

    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
