We have identified the need to increase capacity of human factors expertise in health care.  We are currently developing an introduction to human factors in health care as well as pathways for future study and hope to have this available later in 2022.

You can watch an introduction to human factors and maternity systems presentation by Professor Paul Bowie. 

The information shared in his presentation is relevant across all areas of health care and is not specific to maternity. Professor Bowie is a safety scientist, medical educator and chartered ergonomist and human factors specialist with NHS Education for Scotland.
