Patient Safety First launches ‘How to guide’ for Human Factors

Patient Safety First has produced a Human Factors guide that outlines the concept of human factors in healthcare and provides suggestions of how its elements can be applied by individuals and teams working to improve patient safety. 

Part 1 of the guide focuses on those elements of human factors that require executive leadership such as developing a safety culture and building organisation-wide knowledge of human factors as it relates to patient safety. 

Part 2 focuses on how staff can use knowledge of human factors to make their own daily work environment and activities safer.
