This Human Factors pre-reading pack is from the HEDSup faculty training course, described below. This pack provides awareness of human factors that should be addressed in simulation programmes and is intended for use in faciltator training.

Further info: HEDSup is a 2-day simulation faculty training course delivered by Health Education England West Midlands.

The objective of the course is to support multidisciplinary members of staff in their wish to deliver simulation based teaching, developing a region wide faculty of simulation teachers who are speaking the same language, debriefing in recognised formats and sharing their expertise and experiences.

Do I need to know how to teach using simulation already?

The course will be of value to novice simulation teachers and experts alike. We aim to equip those new to simulation teaching with the knowledge, skills and confidence to begin practice and for the more experienced teachers we aim to ensure a common level of knowledge and approach to simulation across the region. There will be pre course modules and face to face teaching on adult learning theory, human factors and non technical skills, scenario design and debriefing techniques. There is no charge for the course

Human Factors is a term that is now being used much more often in relation to Healthcare.  Through examination of adverse incidents (and episodes of excellence) there is a growing recognition that performance depends on much more than levels of technical skill and theoretical knowledge.
