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.”

Health Education England

“It is human to make mistakes so we – the NHS – need to continuously reduce the potential for error by learning and acting when things go wrong…Patient safety specialist should have oversight of and provide support for patient safety activities across their organisations. Part of their role will be to ensure that systems thinking, human factors and just culture principles are embedded in all patient safety activity.”

The NHS Patient Safety Strategy

“There are signs that the NHS is starting to take human factors seriously—and Covid-19 is a driver.”
