Human factors and patient safety are undoubtedly key issues within acute medicine, and research investigating adverse events in environments such as critical care and surgery has shown the majority of events are caused by preventable error. Principles that have been used to great effect by human factors specialists to manage error within other complex domains (eg civilian aviation, nuclear power generation, military operations) have been adopted into healthcare with varying degrees of success. In recent years there has been a huge increase of human factors research conducted within healthcare, with the importance of such work being clearly recognised and requested by regulators, healthcare staff, health service researchers and medical research funding bodies. Drawing on the great volume of healthcare-specific and broader research, this book provides clinicians and patient safety researchers with a quick and easy-to-read reference book on how to identify, manage and mitigate human factors issues in the management of acutely ill patients treated in multiple specialities. It deals directly with critical care medicine, accident and emergency, trauma, high-dependency, anaesthesia, surgery and other high-risk settings. By combining expertise in human factors and acute medicine, the authors have created an accessible book which is solidly grounded in current human factors theory and also offers valuable reflections from real-life practice in acute medicine. Ultimately it will assist clinical staff across disciplines to identify methods for monitoring and improving the delivery of care provided by healthcare teams to patients, and to aid their consideration on areas for self-development (eg non-technical skills).
