Human Factors and Nontechnical Skills Training in Medicine
Gives conference members an insight into how HF/NTS training has impacted both the aviation and oil and gas industries; and how the lessons learnt might be applicable in the medical world.
HF/NTS training was universally adopted in the aviation industry since the 1970s and the Oil and Gas industries since the late 1980s. Personnel were taught about the importance of communication, leadership, decision making, alcohol and other drugs, situational awareness, fatigue, stress, teamwork and error management. In the normal working environment these elements were accounting for the human errors sometimes leading to catastrophic consequences. Both industries recognised the need for HF/NTS training.
