Program Description: 

The discipline (actually interdisciplinary area) of Human Factors is undertaught in medical and nursing education. As a result, error and safety are widely misunderstood. Worse, the topic is feared and avoided, obviously an undesirable circumstance.

Society is engaged in the biggest overhaul of health care education since the Flexner Report.  Witness the ACGME Outcomes Project, Core competencies, CANmeds, and the Milestones initiatives. While we are changing things around anyway, why preserve obsolete views of error, which train generation after generation to be ashamed of and cover up our most important source of learning?
