Human Factors in Patient Safety

As part of CPDSS, eligible NCHDs can attend courses on human factors in patient safety for all surgical specialities and emergency medicine doctors.

These courses are aimed at improving doctors skills in relation to the human factors aspect of their work, skills such as decision making, communication, team work, leadership, conflict resolution and error management to name a few. In 2017/2018, we will be offering courses in topics such as Resilience Training, and Open Disclosure.
