Human Factors in Health Care

Just attend a meeting of Applying Human Factors in Health Care. Learned a lot from people from different perspectives: doctors, nurse, perfusionist, engineers, psychologists, etc. More and more people start to look this discipline on the impact of patient safety. There are several very interested questions discussed during the session: should all the cardiac surgeons using the same kind bypass tubing set to eliminate the potential human errors? Currently each hospital has its own customized tubing set. How should we design the system to help eliminate the potential human errors? How to find the balance between healthcare process standardization and provider’s own preference? How to use the simulation center as an institutional laboratory for quality safety experiment? Also found very good reviews of this topic by BMJ and University of Wisconsin.
