  • Medical errors are common and largely preventable. In the UK, 1 in 10 hospital admissions has some form of human error, ranging from relatively minor incidents, to never events and death estimated to be up to 5,000 patients per year. Analysis of so called never events has found that human factors are responsible for the majority of these mistakes. The President’s priorities for her term include Well-Being and Workforce. A healthy and content workforce will reduce medical mistakes. It will also add to retention of staff. 

    Taking a lead from other high risk organisations including aviation and air traffic services this conference will examine human factors and their relevance to mistakes in an innovative and engaging way. It will highlight the importance of looking after ourselves, interpersonal relationships, flattening hierarchies and how to ensure adoption of a no blame culture to give the attendee insight into the subject and to learn methods of reducing mistakes.

    Aims

    1. Recognise the relevance of Human Factors in day to day practice and performance 
    2. Recognise features of errors related to human factors and the scale of the problem 
    3. Examine work styles to reduce and prevent errors
