The CHFG are delighted to announce the publication of a second ‘How To’ guide.

‘Implementing human factors in healthcare – Taking further steps’, is the second volume of the ‘How to’ guide that was originally published in 2009. Whilst the original volume focused on giving a broad brush overview of human factors, ‘Taking further steps’ is very much seen as a follow on volume. The resource shares practical experience of applying human factors in healthcare and provides more examples and case studies to demonstrate the implementation of human factors in healthcare.

This recognises that many healthcare organisations have made headway in implementing human factors, and there is a real demand for more information about the potential ways in which human factors methods can be applied to improve patient safety.

The new resource can be found here Implementing human factors in healthcare – How to guide – volume 2

An A5 booklet has also been produced that has extracts of case studies and implementation tips from the full resource. This can be found here Booklet of case studies and implementation tips
