Introduction to the Tools for Clinical Human Factors
The 2016 Report by the Commission on Education and Training for Patient Safety stated that a 'wider understanding of Human Factors principles and practices will contribute significantly to improving the quality and effectiveness of care, and patient experience and safety.' This foundation training course is designed to embed the basic principles of human factors and professionalism into your clinical workplace.
This NHS course is a great opportunity to establish your understanding of the effects of teamwork, tasks, equipment, workspace, culture and organisation on human behaviour and abilities in a clinical setting. By focusing on communication, listening, team working, emotional intelligence, self-awareness, this interactive forum will show you how to get started on effectively reducing human errors and improving patient safety.
By focusing on outcomes, this NHS course will present case studies and group discussions that will drill into the detail of identifying and managing Clinical Human Factors that can result in reducing error rates and sickness absence, and increasing teamwork, safety and productivity.
Designed for, but not limited to; Nurse Leads, Clinical Leads and Service Managers working in Primary and Secondary Care, this step by step guide will equip attendees with the tools and techniques to build improved awareness of Clinical Human Factors.
