Human Factors: Designing your system to suit you
Our aim is to raise the awareness, understanding and application of the science of human factors within healthcare to improve staff and patient safety and wellbeing.
Our ambition is to ensure our staff are familiar with the term 'human factors', understand what it is, how to recognise when HF dynamics affect system performance and safety, and know where to go to find out more.

HF Training: We run a rolling training programme focussed on providing delegates a basic understanding of HF. Our training programme encapsulates both Team Resource Management principles and HF methodology to help staff understand the interacting factors that affect their performance. They can then start to design their ‘system’ to best fit their ways of working and improve theirs and their patients safety and well-being. For more information on our training programme click the training button above.
HF Projects: Many of Our projects often stem from the pledges (something from the course that has resonated with delegates that they wish to try in their working lives). They utilise HF methodology and systems thinking to make changes. Some of our current projects can be found on our projects page, found be selecting the HF projects button above.
HF Engineering: This is the newest component of the programme aimed at providing HF Engineering support to programmes across the Trust. We apply known and recognised HF tools and techniques to support these large scale Transformation Programmes. For more information, select the HF Engineering button above.
