Abstract

The National Research Council's Board on Human-Systems Integration has organized this session. An initial presentation by the NRC BOHSI will provide information on recent projects and updates. Then a panel will discuss the application of human-systems integration (HSI) to the issue of safety patient handling, an issue of growing concern given the high rate of injuries during patient handling activities. The focus of the panel will be on issues related to the scope of the problem, an HSI perspective of patient handling, and the design and implementation of safe patient handling and mobility programs. We will engage the audience in a discussion of these issues to help refine our project in this area.
