New to Human Factors?

We're passionate about spreading the word about Human Factors, and we know it can feel a bit daunting to be surrounded by people with experience when you're new to something. We're determined to make Human Factors more accessible in the veterinary profession, because nobody begins as an expert! In fact, fresh insights and perspectives from new minds with different backgrounds and experiences are important to drive the Human Factors movement and its application in veterinary practices and organisations.

At VetLed, we're sure that our Veterinary Human Factors Conference 2024 will open your eyes to the world of Human Factors, including what you and your team need, how to fill that gap between knowledge/skills and outcome, and what the future of the veterinary profession could look like if we strive for positive change.

Here's VetLed Trainer and Founding Partner, Dan Tipney, with more information about what VetLed do...
