CHI+MED Patient Safety and Medication Error Workshop – Masterclass on research in clinical error
This workshop is a two day event, free of charge. To find out more or to register, please email: V.L.Hurst@swansea.ac.uk
The landmark To Err is Human report puts death from preventable errors in hospitals at a comparable rate to deaths from road accidents. In 2001, the President of the Royal College of Physicians called for a national system for recording adverse medical events after saying mistakes in NHS hospitals may be contributing to the deaths of almost 70,000 patients a year.
• This Masterclass Workshop focuses on the medical, psychological and human computer interaction background to clinical human error, and is particularly aimed at researchers (including PhD researchers) working in a combination of these or related fields.
• The Masterclass leaders are world experts, and will work with Masterclass participants to drive the field forward.
• The Masterclass will support researchers to develop their work and underlying methodologies, particularly exploring the interdisciplinary issues and conflicts.
• The Masterclass will build up a platform where researchers can come together to critically review their work and find ways to improve quality and impact.
Who should attend
• Researchers, including PhD students, who are working on or interested in: Patient Safety; Medication Errors; Incident Reporting and Learning; Safety critical HCI, and related areas.
• All researchers in the EPSRC project CHI-MED, www.chi-med.ac.uk, are encouraged to attend.
