Kia āta kōwhiri Choosing Wisely

The Choosing Wisely campaign seeks to reduce harm from unnecessary and low-value tests and treatment.

We identified the need to increase human factors expertise in health care. We have developed an introduction to human factors in health care and are collaborating with other organisations on a pathway for future study.

Further education opportunities are available via the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of New Zealand.

You can watch the ‘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.
