About the event

https://ergonomics.org.uk/events-calendar/international-perspectives-in-healthcare.html

In this webinar, the third in our series of collaborative events between the CIEHF and the Israel Human Factors and Ergonomics Association (IHFEA), this time with the additional collaboration with the Irish Human Factors & Ergonomics Society, we get insight into the breadth, understanding and integration of human factors in the healthcare systems of three countries: Israel, Ireland and Scotland.

Dr Paul O'Connor will give an overview of the extent to which human factors has penetrated the Irish healthcare system, the challenges to the greater integration of human factors and the future opportunities.

Dr Joan Geiger will talk about 'Ergonomics by the Book: Regulations and Practice'. While we all know how beneficial ergonomics can be in the workplace, in medical institutions and elsewhere, we also know there's often a gap between ergonomics principles and workplace implementation.  We’ll look at the regulatory aspects of healthcare ergonomics in Israel – including some inheritance from pre-1948 Britain! And the steps taken to put those principles into practice in today’s workplace, particularly the healthcare work setting.
