Under the banner of the CIEHF’s South West & South Wales Regional Group, this event is a meeting of human factors, healthcare and quality improvement professionals to discuss the integration of human factors/ergonomics (HFE) in the delivery of healthcare in the South West of England.
This meeting will provide an opportunity to hear from Sue Hignett, Professor of Healthcare Ergonomics & Patient Safety, who will give an outline of the CIEHF’s white paper on the integration of human factors into healthcare, currently in draft. Further information on this work can be found on the CIEHF’s blog.
The meeting will allow for discussion on the content and dissemination of the white paper and explore the current status of HFE integration within the South West. This will start the conversation between healthcare and HFE professionals in the region to identify how these two groups can learn and support the integration of high quality HFE education and interventions.
