National Advisory Board for Human Factors in Dentistry

To advise and raise awareness of the interplay of the multitude of factors called Human Factors

The Board, established in July 2018, following discussions with the General Dental Council (GDC), brings together expert representation of the dental team from different sectors delivering dental care (See Our Board). The focus of the Board is to advise and raise awareness and understanding of the interplay of the multitude of factors called Human Factors that affect the provision of high-quality dental care leading to unforeseen outcomes compromising patient and team safety.   

The NABHFD is unique in that it is the only forum of its kind which brings together the views of several leaders on the importance of human factors for improving patient safety.
