Human Factors in Healthcare Levels One and Two are bundled together in a pack which represents excellent value and will be an indispensible aid to the learning and practice of the key issues in human factors in healthcare.The majority of errors, litigation, and complaints in the health service are due to 'human factors', yet the term is still not widely understood and is sometimes used interchangeably to refer to team training or communication skills. Although including these, the subject of "human factors" goes farbeyond this to look at systems, environmental influences, and interactions with equipment, in addition to self-awareness and human interaction.

The set also outlines ways toimprove the experience of patients and staff across healthcare, in particular focusing on how to improve patient safety.

Editorial Reviews

"As a polemic to raise awareness of human factors issues, it serves well. It is an easy read and it makes points effectively. There are plenty of examples and exercises to work through. It would be the sort of book to put in the hands of main stream nursing colleagues to start them thinkingabout human factors issues." --Review of Human Factors in Healthcare Level One in Occupational Medicine
