‘Promoting a culture of patient safety.’
The National Board of Human Factors (NABHF) acts as the strategic focus for Human Factor issues across dentistry, using expert consensus opinion as a basis to drive decision making. The board make recommendations of best practice and policy, based on the best available evidence and the development of human factor management systems.
NABHFD’s mission is to work towards raising awareness of Human Factors and patient safety in dentistry, and the role of an open and just culture that encourages all dental team members to:
- Understand what is meant by Human Factors and their role in patent safety
- Learn lessons from mishaps and near misses, and make improvements as necessary
- Record and report incidents and near misses so that learning can be widely shared
It is hoped this will reduce the extent of risk and harm to patients and the teams involved in providing the care.Paragraph
