Designing out risk in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

16 Nov 2022
AGM Theatre 4
Design for safety is the most important element in the hierarchy of interventional effectiveness used by high reliability industries and increasingly by healthcare. Systems and equipment design in healthcare often sets us up to fail, and although education, training, checklists and diligence are important and laudable, the environment in which we work determines many of our failures. Fortunately this can be changed with system and design changes, but unfortunately implementation of these when available across healthcare systems of is sporadic and at best very slow.
