A UK perspective on human factors and patient safety education in pharmacy curricula.
Vosper, Helen; Hignett, Sue
Objective: - To take a systematic approach to exploring patient safety teaching in health care curricula, particularly in relation to how educators ensure students achieve patient safety competencies. Findings: - There is a lack of formally articulated patient safety curricula, which means that student learning about safety is largely informal and influenced by the quality and culture of the practice environment. Human Factors and Ergonomics appeared largely absent from curricula. Summary: - Despite its absence from health care curricula, Human Factors and Ergonomics approaches offer a vehicle for embedding patient safety teaching. The authors suggest a possible model, with Human Factors and Ergonomics forming the central structure around which the curriculum can be built.
