Pilot of Human Factors Material in E-Learning Module in Northern Ireland
A pilot approach to introduce Human Factors material into an existing web-based learning programme in Northern Ireland has been undertaken by NISHFN in conjunction with Trust Quality Improvement Leads, the Northern Ireland Practice & Education Council for Nursing and Midwifery (NIPEC) and the HSC Leadership Centre. This project will form part of a larger strategy by NISHFN to raise awareness of and embed HF principles and practices into Health and Social Care (HSC) within the region.
Materials were selected in consultation with members of the NISHFN group. Materials included both the network’s existing learning materials as well as the introduction of new concepts regarding teamwork, leadership, active followership, emotional intelligence and communication tools. However the module will progressively incorporate emergent learning and good practice from the larger NISHFN HF implementation strategy.
Currently awaiting final sign off, the module will soon be available to the entire HSC workforce via http://www.hsclearning.com/
