Meridian Awards – July 2019
A learning package developed in-house was recently short-listed for a regional innovation award. Funded by the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN), ‘Human factors and non-technical skills’ is a video-based learning resource designed to provide an introductory insight into the role that human factors and non-technical skills play in patient safety.
The thirty minute video and promotional poster was produced by Dr Nicola Calthorpe and the RGUC media team. Members of the development team attended the Meridian Innovation Awards, an evening event at the Park Regis Hotel in Birmingham, where the winners were announced.
Human factors and non-technical skills is available on the RGUC YouTube channel. It will also be featured within the Trust’s mandatory training programme for all clinical staff. Further modules covering Graded Assertiveness and Threat and Error are currently under development.
