Event description


Please note that this event has been rescheduled to 8 January 2019 (Tuesday). The session will be delivered at Institute of Systems Science, NUS, in association with Teesside University over a live broadcast webinar.

  • the meaning of human factors

  • clinical aspects of human factors

  • context of health informatics

  • trends of digitalisation

  • opportunities

  • human centric design
