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

BMJ August 2020

“Human factors understanding focuses on optimising human performance through better understanding the behaviour of individuals, their interactions, with each other and with their environment. In health care, it underpins patient safety, offering an integrated approach to quality improvement and clinical excellence.”
