Summary

Our PG Certificate Human Factors and Ergonomics for Patient Safety provides an insight into human factors, focusing on the promotion of patient safety in the healthcare sector. It also concentrates on investigations relevant to understanding and intervening in these situations, with the view to improving conditions for those exposed.

You will benefit from teaching provided by world leading academics (for example, Professor George Havenith, Professor Sue Hignett and Professor Andrew Morris), industry experts and specialists in each area to ensure that you are trained to the highest professional standard.

Previous guest speakers for our Human Factors and Ergonomics for Patient Safety programme include industry experts from Humanscale, EDF Energy, Rolls Royce and AMEC, as well as specialists in health and safety, aviation safety, environmental health, health practitioners and experienced lecturers from other Universities.
