Infection Prevention With Human Factors and Systems Engineering


Errors in complex systems invariably have multiple embedded causes at a variety of levels. Understanding error causality is essential for design improvement. Although human factors experts can produce diagnoses of error causality, there is little guidance for health care professionals on how to diagnosis errors and understand failures in safety-critical systems.

In this webinar, Carla Alvarado, PhD discusses:

  • An understanding of human factors and systems engineering
  • How this approach to infection prevention and patient safety can improve performance, prevent harm when error occurs, and help systems recover from error, mitigating further harm.
