Paper on automation in surgery wins 2011 Human Factors Prize for Excellence in HF/E Research
Date:8/18/2011

h care to support various clinical procedures results in a growing need to conduct research like this that speaks to evidence-based practice. Overall, the referees found the research to be original and exemplary of the science of human factors/ergonomics, with important implications for health care.

The submissions were judged on criteria that included importance of the implications for health care, originality of the research, contribution to the HF/E knowledge base, and soundness of the methodology.

"The Board of Referees worked very hard and had many very good submissions to choose from," said Cooke. "After two rounds of reviews and deliberations, it became clear that the submission by Dr. Manzey and colleagues was both a significant contribution to human factors/ergonomics and to health care and patient safety. It was the obvious winner, and we are all excited to showcase it in Human Factors and at the 2011 HFES Annual Meeting."

Dietrich Manzey is a university professor of work, engineering and organizational psychology at the Institute of Psychology and Ergonomics, Berlin Institute of Technology, Germany. He received his PhD in experimental psychology from the University of Kiel, Germany, in 1988 and his habilitation (the highest German academic qualification) in psychology from the University of Marburg, Germany, in 1999. His research addresses issues of human-automation interaction in different domains, workload, performance in complex tasks, and issues of system safety in high-hazard industries.

"I feel very honored and thank all of the reviewers very much, also on behalf of my coauthors," said Manzey. "I have always been a big fan of the field of human factors and in 2006 became one of the founders of the first human factors master's program at a German university. Getting this award means very much to me."
