Welcome to this eLearning package which has been specifically designed to contain the key elements you need to know about:
- human factors
- delivering simulation and debrief
- preparing to teach human factors to others as a trainer.
This tutorial has been written alongside Capability in Practice 5 (CiP 5) from the RCOG Core Curriculum. It has been designed for trainees, consultants, midwives, obstetric anaesthetists and any healthcare professional working within the multidisciplinary maternity team to understand the concepts of human factors as applied to maternity care, and then reflect on how to implement these in everyday practice. Although these concepts are focussed on maternity, they can be further applied to all areas of healthcare.
Note you do not have to complete this eLearning package in one attempt – but it is advised that you re-visit the material, and use the teaching materials provided to disseminate human factors training to others.
