Abstract

Within the last decade, there has been a growing emphasis on applying human factors principles in the healthcare domain, and although human factors is a well-established scientific discipline, it is still a relatively new concept for the healthcare community. Educating healthcare audiences on the goals, history, and contributions of the human factors discipline may dispel misconceptions; preserve the integrity of this scientific discipline; inform healthcare stakeholders about the value of human factors research; and increase the uptake of human factors principles in the healthcare domain. Panel members will share their views on human factors education for healthcare audiences, including their past experiences, personal successes, and insights on the challenges that remain. Panelists will also engage the audience in an open discussion to generate novel ideas on how to advance the healthcare community's understanding of the human factors discipline.
