What time will the symposium be in your TIME ZONE?
Human error is human nature, so how can we as healthcare professionals, make it easier to get things right and harder to get things wrong? When we apply a human factors approach to care, we refocus to gain a deeper understanding of design, systems and process that may hamper us in our attempt to deliver best care. Human factors science is complex and multifactorial. This symposium will provide a deeper understanding of human factors, reshape mind sets and better support safety and quality care of children.
