Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care and Patient Safety
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 2007 - Medical - 995 pages
In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published a report exposing the high prevalence of medical error, boosting academic, medical, and human factors interest in this field. The Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care and Patient Safety presents the most current knowledge on concepts and methods of human factors and ergonomics, and their applications to help improve quality, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness in patient care. This influential book provides specific information on how to analyze medical errors with the fundamental goal to reduce such errors and the harm that potentially ensues.
Editor Pascale Carayon and an impressive group of contributors highlight important issues relevant to healthcare providers and professionals and their employers. They discuss the design of work environment and working conditions to improve satisfaction and well-being, and the reduction of burnout and other ailments often experienced by healthcare providers and professionals. It is a remarkably comprehensive account offering readers invaluable knowledge from individuals who are some of the most respected in the field.
This important handbook should be read by all healthcare and human factors professionals, and is very useful to quality improvement and patient safety specialists in healthcare organizations. It is likewise appropriate for graduate-level courses in nursing and other fields, as well as undergraduate courses in human factors, ergonomics, and engineering.
