HFUX Research Presenting at the 2024 International Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care in Chicago, Tuesday, March 26th, 2024

We are very excited to announce that #HFUXResearch #founder and #ceo, Heidi Mehrzad, will be co-presenting a poster with Janet Creaser, Ph.D., Senior Vice President of Human Factors and UX at Ipsos North America, and Sami Durrani, Associate Vice President of Product Diabetes and Connected Care at Eli Lilly and Company, at the 2024 International Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care in Chicago, Illinois!

In Poster Session MDD13, on Tuesday, March 26, 4:45pm - 6:15pm CDT, they will present case study examples on Determining When and How to Include Multiple Users in Human Factors Testing: Case Study Examples.

The poster will aim to provide examples of #usabilitytesting for products in which one or more individuals, such as a #parent, #caregiver or #surgical team, may be involved regularly or infrequently in managing a #medicaldevice or #drugdeliverysystem for its #intendeduse and answer questions such as: how to evaluate a device when more than one #intendeduser may be involved in the use at the same time or in sequence, how to make appropriate decisions about user group inclusion throughout the #humanfactorsengineering process, and how to address known or #foreseeable #useerror scenarios when those scenarios predict that the presence of other users could impact #safe and #effective use, and many, many, more.

Each case study will walk through the considerations of the intended user group or groups, the #useenvironment, discuss the impact the different testing options would yield in relation to performance objectives, and will walk through the resolution of how each choice meets #regulatory requirements for #FDA and #ISO62336 human factors guidance.

Come and chat with us about our exciting poster and of course all things #humanfactors in #medicaldevice and #combinationproduct development. We hope to see you there! Please visit the HFES HCS website for full event program details, and register here to join us at the conference!

#HFESHCS brings together leading #HumanFactors experts, #Pharmaceutical and #MedicalDevice companies, #BioMedical #Engineers, #Healthcare providers, #FDA representatives, and #PatientSafety #Researchers to discuss real-world challenges in health care and find solutions for such.
