Summary

Written by experts in the field, this book explores the relevance and contributions of the field of human factors to health care. It begins with overviews of the field of human factors and the primary research methodologies of that field and goes on to review the cognitive issues that must be considered in the context of the health care environment and the potential for exercises to improve such cognitive functions. The remaining chapters cover a range of cutting-edge topics including: care giving, telecommunication issues, design of medical devices, computer monitoring of patients, automated communication systems, computer interface issues in general, and the use of the Web as a source for health information.
