ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM

The 2014 Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care: Leading the Way went beyond the basic human factors/ergonomics tenets highlighted in the 2013 symposium by providing practical and actionable methods, guidelines, and best practices that enabled participants to advance their HF/E approaches and outcomes in their respective work settings.

The symposium brought together professionals and stakeholders in both the scientific and practice realms of the health-care community to bridge knowledge gaps among them. HF/E professionals presented the latest research, best practices, and case histories. Unique to this symposium is the inclusion of manufacturers, health-care providers and policy makers, who discussed their experiences in using HF/E processes and principles and their unique needs for HF/E science and considerations.
