Inaugural Lecture - Professor Sue Hignett
About this event
What has making a cup of tea got to do with healthcare safety? In this inaugural lecture, Professor Sue Hignett will discuss how to get into an ambulance, go to the toilet in hospital, prepare for an operation, replace a hip joint and finally find belongings after a CBRN incident.
These are all examples of interactions between people (workers and patients) and ‘things’. The science of Human Factors (Ergonomics) is used to analyse and design ‘systems’ and ‘things’ to support people to succeed within their capabilities and limitations.
This helps to create user-friendly devices, environments, and systems and supports safer healthcare.
Attendance at Inaugural Lectures is free, however, we ask guests to pre-book for catering and monitoring purposes.
