Watch this space for dates…
Healthcare is full of examples of poor design, such as: drugs packaging & storage; non-standardised infusion pumps; anaesthetic machines with critical switches unguarded and not alarmed etc. that have an impact on patient safety. The Health and Safety Investigation Board have identified design and user interface as the most frequent area that needs addressing in their investigations to date.
With the changes occurring within NHS Supply Chain, now is a good time to get a conversation started and to understand – Could human factors & ergonomics contribute more to the process of procurement? What do designers need to know to design products that healthcare will procure? and what does healthcare procurement need to enable them to buy products that improve patient safety?
