The charity working to make healthcare safer
“We at CHFG have been listening to frontline staff in the UK and abroad to assess how we might support people through the current emergency. Many of our team have experience in high-pressure, high-stakes situations, the science of human factors and non-technical skills. The key human factors messages we want to share can be found in a PDF we have prepared.” NB for language translations go to Resources/COVID-19.
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.
“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.”
