CHI+MED researchers at UCL have created a survey to find out what types of infusion pumps are in use, and under what circumstances.
“We are investigating the design and use of medical devices in order to reduce the chances of mistakes occurring in practice. This survey aims to find out about the different models of infusion pumps used across clinical areas, how they are managed and the extent to which smart pump technology such as Drug Error Reduction Software is used (or not!). The results will inform future research.”
If you work in the NHS and manage infusion devices or train people to use them please fill in the survey, which should take about 20 minutes.
In order to thank you for taking part, at the end of the survey you will be given the choice to enter a prize draw for a £50 Amazon voucher (three of these will be given out in total). You will also be given the option to request a summary report of the survey results after the study is completed.
If you have any questions, please contact Jo Iacovides, Research Associate at the UCL Interaction Centre.
Please share this survey with your colleagues, thank you.
CHI+MED (Computer-Human Interaction for Medical Devices) is an EPSRC-funded project to improve the safety of interactive (programmable) medical devices, such as infusion pumps. By understanding more about device design and human factors, medical errors can be reduced thus saving lives http://www.chi-med.ac.uk/
