  • Human Factors in Extremis: Capturing the lessons of the frontline - open seminar

    06 March 2015

    Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham

    The last decade has seen unprecedented improvements in the management of battlefield trauma. A major reason for this has been the attention to communication, followership, simulation and team training so that professionals can continue to perform under the most austere of environments. This one day event – the ninth in our series of open seminars – will focus on the challenges of maintaining human factors under the most extreme circumstances. There will be opportunity to network and make contact with policy makers, practitioners and clinicians. 

    More information and registration. A copy of the provisional programme can be downloaded below.

    The seminar is organised jointly by the Clinical Human Factors Group, the NIHR Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre (SRMRC) and the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine.
