Abstract

Healthcare is delivered in a diversity of settings, with considerable variation in local conditions. Emergency Medicine stands as the principle exemplar of front - line medicine. It is unique in providing a number of operating characteristics that make it a natural laboratory for the study and application of human factors ergonomics as they apply to clinical medicine. This setting is a powerful model for the interdisciplinary study of human-system interaction and its impact on patient and health provider safety.
