This website provides a broad-ranging and in depth resource for learning about design principles and methods, particularly focused on designing for and with people.
In this paper, Sue Hignett, introduces emerging ideas in research on design, the role of human factors and systems thinking, and the key risks of new technologies in healthcare organisations.
This guide from the NPSA is aimed at designers, regulators and purchasing managers, but has broader relevance to pharmacists and anyone involved in design for patient safety.
This NPSA guide provides a detailed illustration of how principles of safe design can be applied to widely used medical technologies. It particularly focuses on the design of electronic infusion devices, such as infusion pumps and syringe drivers.
