Aimed at Clinicians and Managers, this national virtual conference will provide a practical guide to human factors in healthcare, and how a human factors approach can improve patient care, quality, process and safety. There will be an extended focus on the role of human factors in patient safety investigation in line with the new National Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF).

Getting the human factors right minimises error, and maximises performance. It makes it easier to do the right thing, and harder to do the wrong thing.
