Understanding the science of safety and the core principles of high reliability are first steps in creating a true culture of safety wherein human factor can contribute in the improvement in healthcare delivery. In the world of healthcare, very little training in human factors is provided to staff, unlike the other safety-critical industries. Human factors research examines the environmental, organizational and job factor of human interacting with the system as well as physiological and psychological characteristics that influence behavior at work. Principle of safety science is a commitment to zero harm. Understanding and implementing the best practices can build high reliability organizations a roadmap to achieve exemplary clinical outcome.

I’m a nurse, entrepreneur and gamer. I’ll take the audience through the story of how a nurse that ends up working for one of the biggest video games companies in the world, Blizzard Entertainment, decides to unite her hobby, video games with her passion, caring. I like to start with a game to break the ice, followed by the 3 lessons on how I create systems that turn stress into challenge, with a social factor (relatedness) and making sure the efforts are rewarded. In healthcare we constantly ask people to do thing (eat well, go for long walks…) and stop doing things (adding salt, smoking…) and we’ve been doing it for many years the same way, but it’s not very effective and we know it. Through my talk, I encourage nurses to see what they can do differently, and evaluate it with other tools to see how effective the intervention can be. With this 3 simple steps to keep in mind, we can design better systems for education and prevention in health. We’ll finish with a Q&A, if possible I like to use SLI.DO to do that so people can ask their questions when they have them, rather than in the end.
This talk is based on my TEDx Barcelona talk, you can take a look at it here: https://youtu.be/Wra6U5xEWsg
