Human Factors for Safe and Effective Teams

Avoidable error and associated harm is sadly not decreasing and the associated costs are a tremendous drain on financial resources and contribute to staff sickness and burnout. There are increasing vacancies in health and social care that are simply untenable.

Since 2002 Atrainability have been providing Human Factors Training to Healthcare Providers and we have experienced that the majority of issues affecting team and individual motivation and performance are related to one or more of the following areas.

Rachael - Doctor of Emergency Medicine
“Frimley Park Hospital PGMEC had the privilege of hosting Trevor Dale who led 2 workshops on "Safety in Clinical Practice" to our surgeons and theatre staff. These sessions were informative, inspiring and have challenged us to rethink how we deliver a safe service to patients in theatres. Trevor was erudite and entertaining throughout the sessions!”
Patrick Fon Sen Chong - Consultant
Vascular & Endovascular Surgeon
“This course has really helped me understand more about the human elements of errors and error reporting. We focus a lot in healthcare on systems and process and it’s really widened my thought processes around how we behave as humans and how that impacts on what we do when we’re working.”
