Improving patient safety, now more important than ever


Human Factors is the application of scientific methods to make people safer and perform better. In a clinical setting, it involves an understanding of team works, tasks, equipment, workspace, culture and communication to make healthcare safer for patients and staff, to optimise well-being and improve system performance.

Organised by the ESICM Perioperative Intensive Care (POIC) Section, this free webinar will address ways to perform in high-risk situations, improve your team non-technical skills and strive for zero preventable deaths.

Watch the replay and learn more about the Patient Safety Movement.
