Training: Surgical Workstream

17th & 18th September 2014


The training aimed to provide those involved in the surgical workstream of the PSA with an overview of principles in human factors/ergonomics, systems analysis and quality improvement. It looked at how these principles could be applied to their own surgical patients, specifically looking at patients with suspected appendicitis which is to be the focus of their improvement projects over the next year.
