Event description:

You are cordially invited to join To Err is Human: Human Factors in Patient Safety Seminar on Friday the 14th of September 2018. We are looking forward to welcoming you at the Park Rotana Hotel in the beautiful city of Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates. Our theme, Healthcare Heroes, celebrates clinicians’ unique ability to prevent errors and harm and, at the same time, recognises that healthcare professionals are also imperfect human beings. This timely seminar pursues the essence of human factors and patient safety, and delivers practical information and actionable ideas to clinicians at the sharp end. Highlighted Topics: • The importance of human factors and how they affect our everyday practice • The effect of human fallibility and cognitive biases on patient safety • The role of self, context & task approach and systemic migration in patient safety • Using non-technical skills as safety solutions • Application of human factors in safe medication management • Swizz Cheese approach in accident causation • The importance of near misses in enhancing patient safety. Target Audience: • Quality and Patient Safety Directors, Managers, Officers and Coordinators • Consultants, Specialists, House Officers and Resident Doctors • Nursing Directors and Managers, Registered Nurses and Midwifes, Pharmacists and Allied Health Professionals • Medical and Nursing Students, and all other healthcare professionals interested in human factors and patient safety. This highly recommended seminar was developed with the support of, and in collaboration with, the Clinical Human Factors Group and West Midlands Patient Safety Collaborative (UK). In global healthcare, human factors and ergonomics are now recognised as integral to patient safety, staff wellbeing and system performance.
