Ross AJ, Jaye PJ, Anderson JE, Snell P, Hopper A. Development and piloting of a 2-day simulation-based course in Human Factors for Organisational Resilience Funded by the London Deanery’s Simulation and Technology-enhanced Learning Initiative (£19,128.50).

  • Developed and delivered two two-day courses for inter-professional groups; focused on resilience including clinical site visits.

Simulation and Interactive Learning Centre, St Thomas House: Improving Care and Patient Safety: Senior nurse programme Oct –Nov 2013.

  • Provided 5 Human Factors mini-modules over three day course, focused on resilience. Candidates were all specialty heads of nursing at GSTT, plus the Chief Nurse.


Our primary goals are to develop, implement and test interventions to increase organisational resilience, and to disseminate new ideas about safety throughout the NHS. Our applied work focuses on learning from successful patient outcomes and not just from failures.
