Teaching basic human factors engineering principles provides a basis for making demands for excellence in the design of healthcare systems. Keywords: Patient safety, device design, human factors engineering, healthcare training 20 INTRODUCTION The Veterans Health Administration's National Center for Patient Safety (NCPS) is an integrated component of the VA healthcare system. NCPS is charged with promoting a safe healthcare environment and decreasing the risk of serious harm to patients. NCPS has promoted use of multiple tools for improving heath care safety including Root Cause Analysis (RCA), Healthcare Failure Mode Effect Analysis, and application of human factors engineering (HFE) principles in problem solving.

Become familiar with human factors engineering techniques and principles related to root causes; and understand why they are crucial to effective problem solving. , why the first solutions to come to mind may not produce the desired outcome. (NCPS 2005) From the skills gained at the workshop, clinicians are able to perform a basic 23 evaluation of devices, medications, and architecture in an operational environment. Training programs have expanded learning opportunities for their students to include patient safety electives with assigned projects, patient safety rotations during residency, and more recently an opportunity to spend a year as patient safety Chief Resident.
