Conference on Human Factors and Cognitive Ergonomics in Healthcare | Luxembourg : May 4 | Brussels : May 5, 2015

The conference on Human Factors and Cognitive Ergonomics in Healthcare will take place in Luxembourg : May 4, 2015 - 9:00 to 12:30, and Brussels : May 5, 2015 - 9:00 to 12:30. Human factors knowledge and principles act to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. Education of HF&E can transform a working environment where many errors can occur and professionals fail to operate in an efficient manner, into an environment of efficacy and efficiency. Application of human factors principles contributes towards professionals’ cognitive and mental well-being, leading to excellency and a reduction of operation errors.

General Information

The study of Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF&E) examines the relationship between human beings, their working environments and the systems with which they interact by focusing on improving efficiency, creativity, productivity and job satisfaction, with the goal of minimizing errors.

A failure to apply human factors principles is a key aspect of poor performance, errors and deviances in working environments. Human factors principles can be applied in any professional setting. Industries such as aviation, manufacturing and the military have been applying knowledge of human factors to improve working environments, systems and processes for the past decades.

This discipline recognizes the need that the workplace needs to be redesigned and all professionals and leaders educated to have a basic understanding of human factors principles.

Examples from the industries that apply human factors principles have shown that poor workforce performance and errors in the workplace have detrimental consequences – both financial and cultural- to the business and its workforce.

HF&E is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system. It is the discipline that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design and uses elements of cognitive neuroscience, industrial and organizational psychology, anthropometry, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, industrial design, information design, kinesiology, and physiology.

The combination of these elements acts in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.

Education for HF&E can transform a working environment where many errors can occur and professionals fail to operate in an efficient manner, into a working place of efficacy, efficiency, cognitive and mental well-being.

The development of Professional Environmental Microsimulations for Cognitive Ergonomics (PEMCE) educational model is a trend for training people, respecting their state of mind, evaluating and enhancing their cognitive capacities in the workplace.

 Objectives

Human factors knowledge and principles act to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. Education of HF&E can transform a working environment where many errors can occur and professionals fail to operate in an efficient manner, into an environment of efficacy and efficiency.

Application of human factors principles contributes towards professionals’ cognitive and mental well-being, leading to excellency and a reduction of operation errors.
