Human Factors Resources

Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE) encourage people to do the right thing rather than the wrong thing. The importance of taking HFE into consideration in design is being increasingly understood and embraced in healthcare technology. 

In 2018 the  Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF) launched their Human Factors and Ergonomics in healthcare white paper. It's a great (readable!) resource covering device usability, standardisation of design, fit-for-purpose equipment and more. It can be downloaded here
