Event Overview

Why attend?

How can Human Factors offer ways to reduce errors in the surgical profession?

Join us for this full-day conference, hosted by RCS England President, Professor Neil Mortensen, and organised by Professor Peter Brennan, RCS England Council Member and Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon, and Mr John Hardie, Orthopaedic Trainee, to explore all the benefits a Human Factors approach can bring to surgery and the improvement it can bring to patient outcomes.

We have a programme of talks, keynote speeches and break-out sessions to give you opportunities to expand your knowledge and provide you a wider understanding of Human Factors principles and practices and how they can contribute to the improvement of the quality of care for patients.

You can join us in person at the RCS England state-of-the-art new building, or online via Hopin, our virtual events platform.

Who should come?

The event is open to all grades, from medical students to consultant and SAS surgeons, surgical leaders and everyone in between. It will also benefit members of the wider surgical care team.

Hear from a list of expert speakers discussing a variety of exciting and interesting topics, including:

  • Dr Kevin Fong, BBC presenter and Anaesthetist, talking about optimising performance;
  • Aidan Fowler, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, talking about the NHS overview of safety ;
  • Dr Anne Isaac, from NATS and Capt Harry Nelson, from Airbus, discussing how surgeons can learn from other industries ;
