CHILL hosted an event on the 23rd February to celebrate the success of the HEE Human Factors Exchange. This group has been instrumental in developing the capacity and capability of knowledge and dissemination of human factors in healthcare. Five presentations were delivered which covered topics from Safety Huddles a human factors approach to implementation to the recognition of respiratory failure.
The projects were a collaborative partnership between HEE and the EMAHSN Patient Safety Collaborative.
Clinicians with support from human factors ergonomists have identified areas that would benefit from a human factors approach to provide understanding and solutions to problems in healthcare.
