Implementation Science for Innovation and Discovery

Implementation Science for Innovation and Discovery

The CTSI Academy presents a new education series on Implementation Science (IS). This new education series will offer a monthly presentation for faculty, staff and students to facilitate development, application, and uptake of innovation in research and scholarly activities using implementation science (IS). The curriculum will use a mix of case-based, journal club-format and more theoretical presentations.

The goal of the series to create a local IS learning community and develop a core group of institutional IS experts. Participants will be able to build their IS expertise to scale up innovation and discovery in real-world practice.

Sessions will generally be offered every fourth Monday of the month (except December). Attendees can attend the presentations virtually or in-person.

Human Factors Overview: A Key Perspective for Patient Safety Research & Operations

Monday, June 24, 2024 , 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. at the Medical College of Wisconsin Milwaukee Campus - MEB M1300 or Zoom

Speaker: Elizabeth (Liza) Lerner Papautsky, PhD, MS, assistant professor, department of Biomedical & Health Information Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago

What is human factors and why is it relevant to healthcare? Human factors is the science of applying the understanding of human capabilities and limitations (cognitive, perceptual, behavioral, etc.) to investigating and supporting human performance in complex environments. It offers both a sociotechnical systems perspective and a set of methods to study how humans work in healthcare, aviation, nuclear power, and other complex domains. This presentation will provide an overview of human factors theory and applications, examples of impactful efforts, and considerations and recommendations for incorporating human factors in your work including research, design, and implementation.
