Human Factors are the behavioural and physiological elements that affect human performance in general and in particular with regard to Threat and Error Management. The elimination, trapping and mitigation of avoidable error, resultant harm and associated cost is the primary aim.
The realisation that Human Factors play a crucial part in patient safety outcome is rapidly becoming apparent amongst medical educationists across the World. The focus on training healthcare teams has risen to the fore in recent times. The Atrainability team has been at the vanguard of developing Human Factors across the Healthcare spectrum since 2002 after many years’ experience in Commercial and Military Aviation and now Elite Sports.
