Human Factors training seeks to explain and demonstrate the varying interactions between individuals, teams, equipment and environment, and most importantly it provides strategies to change our behaviour so that we are less likely to make errors and harm patients.

This training course has been approved by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and delegates may claim up to 6.0 CPD credits for attending the event. The maximum available for a day's training.


One day course provides:

•    An introduction and explanation of the language of human factors

•    Demonstration of how the NHS can benefit from the experience of High Reliability Organisations (HROs)    in reducing human error by human factors training

•    ‘Hands on’ experience in a simulated clinical environment designed to improve teamwork by optimising communication skills and situation awareness

•    An opportunity to analyse team performance
