Please join us for this complimentary webinar!

This webinar will give an overview of human factors engineering and how it can be applied in dialysis facilities. Presenters will review the lessons learned by a project team which observed the human factors involved in infection prevention practices in six outpatient dialysis clinics around the United States.

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to:

  • Define the science of human factors.
  • Explain an application of human factors engineering in healthcare.
  • Identify some of the human factors relative to infection prevention practices common in outpatient dialysis facilities and evaluate these considerations in local practice.
