HFES sponsors 2012 Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care
Date:7/5/2011

The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society invites you to attend the 2012 Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care, to be held March 12-14, 2012, at the Marriott Baltimore Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland. Mark your calendars for this exciting first-time event.

The symposium aims to bring together professionals and other stakeholders in both the scientific and practice realms of the health-care community and to bridge knowledge gaps among them. HF/E professionals will present the latest research, best practices, and case histories.

Lucien L. Leape, MD, kicks off the symposium with the opening plenary address on Monday, March 14. Leape is Adjunct Professor of Health Policy in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health. A health policy analyst whose research has focused on patient safety and quality of care, Leape was one of the founders of the National Patient Safety Foundation.

Other symposium speakers will address a variety of topics and perspectives in health-care human factors/ergonomics, with presentations organized along three main tracks: Information Technology, Macroergonomics and Patient Care, and Medical Device Design.

Specific topics may include emergency room management, patient handling, public health, home health care, electronic health records, health-care information systems, medical information technology, design of medicine/drug delivery devices, and usability testing.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with a broad range of audiences across the health-care industry, academia, consulting, and regulatory agencies and gain valuable knowledge on the latest in science, regulatory requirements, best practices, and industry needs related to health-care human factors/ergonomics.
