“User Mishandling” Design for Users and Use Environment

MD3 - Human Factors Design, Track: Medical and Drug Delivery Devices

Carolyn Hartzell, Human Factors Engineer, will encourage HF professionals and medical device manufacturers to think beyond evaluating use errors and misuse in medical device development. Manufacturers often cite “user mishandling” as a root cause of device malfunctions and other adverse events. Carolyn will examine MAUDE data and suggest ways to predict and prevent “user mishandling” by re-framing user mishandling as a failure to properly design for real use and use environments.

Friday, April 16, 12:30-1:30 p.m. EST

Considerations for Planning and Conducting Pre-clinical HF Validation Studies

MD13 - Human Factors Research, Track: Medical and Drug Delivery Devices

Timothy Visich, Program Manager, Senior Human Factors Engineer, will provide insights and guidance to medical human factors specialists on how to effectively plan and execute pre-clinical human factors studies to support clinical studies. The presentation will focus on how these studies compare to standard commercial human factors activities, as well as tips and insights on conducting these types of studies across differing products.
