Human Factors Level One was highly commended in the 'Health and Social Care' category at the 2015 BMA Medical Books Awards. `This informal and thought-provoking book focuses on why mistakes are made in the NHS, and methods through which the multidisciplinary team can reduce their occurrence. Despite being written by a medic, the author assumes no medical training on the part of the reader, making excellent use of examples from practice, which are clearly explained so that anyone could understand the core concepts.' Review of Human Factors in Healthcare Level One in British Journal of Hospital Medicine `As a polemic to raise awareness of human factors issues, it serves well. It is an easy read and it makes points effectively. There are plenty of examples and exercises to work through. It would be the sort of book to put in the hands of main stream nursing colleagues to start them thinking about human factors issues.'
