Description

Staffordshire University’s new part time postgraduate course has been developed in partnership with patients, clinicians and senior healthcare leaders to enable health and social care professionals to reduce avoidable errors, prevent unintended harm and provide safer, high quality care.

New for September 2020, this course focuses specifically on Human Factors within the Health and Social Care sectors with the aim of ensuring health and social care professionals are fully prepared to meet the patient safety needs and challenges of their workplace.

The PgCert is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF) and provides students with the skills to apply Human Factors to reduce the risk of incidents occurring and enables them to respond appropriately to health, safety or wellbeing incidents.

Progression onto the MSc offers students a deeper understanding of the philosophy, theories, science and application of Human Factors within Health and Social Care sectors. Upon completion, graduates will have achieved a comprehensive understanding of the subject area and be able to undertake a critical evaluation of, and deliver, achievable Human Factors solutions in their workplace and elsewhere.

The course is delivered via blended and online learning, both of which enable students to flexibly fit studying for a masters around existing work commitments. The distance learning option gives students access to learning materials at a time and place that suit them, while the blended approach means they will also have the opportunity for on-campus contact with peers and the teaching team.
