2019 Town Hall on HFE for Patient Work

ABSTRACT: The 2019 Town Hall gathers stakeholders in the human factors and ergonomics (HFE) community who share an interest in applying HFE to study and improve patient work, an area called "patient ergonomics." The objective of this town hall is to communally scope, prioritize, and develop applications of HFE for patient work. Whereas the 2018 Town Hall was primarily an initial community gathering, the 2019 Town Hall is envisioned as a space for further developing a community of practice in this area. The central activity of the 2019 Town Hall is a public commentary period, with live scribing, inviting attendees to address the (1) scope of patient ergonomics; (2) prioritization of future efforts; and (3) proposals to lead future development efforts.
