The charity working to make healthcare safer
The charity works with clinicians and experts to promote the use of Human Factors Science to make healthcare safer for patients and staff, to optimise well-being and improve system performance.
Helping healthcare organisations build high reliability into operations
Encouraging a just culture, better local investigations, so mistakes are not repeated and success is.
Through education and training in all healthcare settings and designing for safety
The Clinical Human Factors Group, a charity, was set up by Martin Bromiley after his late wife died needlessly following a routine operation. Ten years on, the charity has influenced a generation of workers by promoting the application of Human Factors science in all areas of healthcare. However, the NHS continues to have 230 preventable deaths per week so there’s more to do.
Interviews with Founder Martin Bromiley OBE, Chair John Pickles and Trustees Nikki Davey and Debbie Rosenorn-Lanng. These are a free training resource and cover subjects including bullying, hierarchy, culture, speaking-up, design, training and quality improvement.
We work across organisations, departments and disciplines and our independence allows us to raise the awkward questions and challenge mainstream assumptions.
“Think of the charity as a campaign and activist group with the power of respected world class experts who are trusted for their independent, considered and thoughtful support and guidance. We have the ability to push where others can’t and it is vital that as we grow and develop we retain these vital capabilities.”
