  • Engineers, programmers, industrial designers, marketing managers, and others building safe healthcare systems
  • Healthcare industry personnel (e.g., devices, software) building safe systems or dealing with FDA requirements
  • Legal personnel involved in patient safety cases related to HFE (e.g., device design, failure to rescue)
  • Researchers wanting to add HFE methods to their innovation (e.g., smart alarms, intelligent medication dispensers)
Why should you attend?  

  • Many RCAs and patient safety projects fail (root cause wrong, interventions weak)
  • Your new work area doesn't work, your new warning sign is ignored, your new software is bypassed, etc.
  • Meet expectations for healthcare oversight organizations (e.g., Joint Commission, AHRQ) who have an
    increased awareness of HFE
  • Address FDA requirements for HFE - required at early stages of R&D for industry and academic settings
What do you learn?  

  • The basics of HFE and why it leads to better healthcare tools, work areas, and systems
  • HFE methods (e.g., usability testing) that improve safety tools like RCA and FMEA
  • How to select HFE and safety projects -- when to use, how to use, and likely roadblocks
  • The role of HFE in innovation and innovation research (bench to bedside) - meeting FDA expectations

Who is teaching?  

  • John Gosbee
  • Teaches HFE to a wide audience in healthcare settings (physicians, biomed engineers, VP Med Affairs)
  • Teaches to personnel in policy (FDA), academia (Penn), industry (Eli Lilly), and research (Johns Hopkins)
  • Lives and breaths to create interactive teaching that leads to practical skills
              (arising from empathy after attending hundreds of boring workshops)
