    What are Human Factors?

    Human Factors training derives from the recognition within safety critical industries, originating in the aviation industry, that team members require specific training in non-technical skills as well as technical skills in order to mitigate error and limit the possibility of an adverse event.

    In the same way, staff working in IVF, whatever their role, need to recognise that human error is inevitable and that clinic-wide performance can be enhanced through an understanding of the effects of teamwork, tasks, equipment, workspace, culture and organisation on human behaviour in healthcare settings.

    A human factors approach to patient safety differs from traditional safety training in that the focus is less with the technical knowledge and skills required to perform specific tasks, but rather with the cognitive and interpersonal skills needed to effectively manage a team-based, high-risk activity.
