Event description

Description


High Reliability Organisations (HRO) such as airlines, nuclear power and the NHS have developed Human Factors training programmes designed to improve communication and prevent error occurring. Interestingly an added advantage of this training is an accompanying improvement in organisational efficiency. The lessons learned from HRO's are eminently transferable to any work environment.

Human factors training seeks to explain and demonstrate the varying interactions between individuals, teams, equipment and environment, and most importantly it provides strategies to change our behaviour so that we are more likely to interact effectively with colleagues and less likely to make errors

Human Factors encompasses all factors that can influence people and their behaviour. Some common human factors that can increase influence the work environment include communication problems, mental state and stress, poor teamwork, lack of planning, loss of situational awareness and process design. Dr Nicola Smith, Clinical Psychologist will run an informative and interactive session.

This course was recently run for some members of the Department whose feedback was:

“Great course – thought-provoking. Lots of lessons to take away”

“I’ve learnt that there is room for development and a mentality to encourage communication and development”

Target audience: All staff

Places are limited to 20 so will be offered on a first-come first-served basis. We will be operating a waiting list so please register your interest via Eventbrite or email events@oncology.ox.ac.uk
