The IEHF* healthcare SIG will host a Patient & Healthcare Provider Safety Symposium in London on Monday 25 November 2013.
CHI+MED’s Ann Blandford and Chris Vincent (from UCL) and Gerrit Niezen (from Swansea University) will also be presenting at the event. Gerrit will have a poster on “Modelling dynamic human-device interaction in healthcare” and Ann and Chris will be speaking, from 13.35 to 14.45pm.
Ann will focus on “the nature and causes for ‘gaps’ between the ways that devices are intended to be used and the ways that they are actually used in practice” and Chris will “describe the use of personas and scenarios to support multidisciplinary communication as part of a systems approach.”
