Waleed M. AlHarbi, MHPE, PhD, RRT, RCCP, is the Leader of the Patient Safety & Quality PGSA Team at CRESENT Academic & Training Affairs, a Human Factors & Ergonomics Consultant and a Medical Education & Simulation Consultant at King Fahad Medical City. Waleed will present two projects taking place at Medical City in Saudi Arabia. He hopes to gain insight and guidance from the network on how HF practitioners may have handled similar situations:

1) Physicians and Multidisciplinary Team Communication - Waleed will discuss how Medical City's large patient capacity and expected high patient volume put it in a risk continuum. This risk increases by lack of unified methods, time or policies for handoffs between medical professionals and other multidisciplinary healthcare providers.

2) HF Oriented Analysis Tools for Incident Investigations - Waleed will share how Medical City's current risk analysis process only utilizes RCAs in their incident analysis. It was suggested that an HF-focused tool also be used for incident analyses. A team of HF professionals are working to develop this tool and effectively integrate it into the incident investigations.

Jackie Bartlett, PhD, RN, is the Director of Evidence Based Practice at Children's Mercy Hospital Kansas City in Missouri. Jackie will present her project, Maintaining Engagement in Staff Working from Home. She will use the "all share-all learn format" to understand what other organizations are doing to continue engaging the work from home workforce during the pandemic.

Laurie Wolf, PhD, is the Human Factors Implementation Director at Carilion Medical Center in Virginia. She will present her project, Temperature Scanning at COVID Screening Stations. Laurie and her team are conducting usability tests on two automated scanners in comparison with the currently used forehead scanners. She will share her preliminary results and requests feedback from the network on what systems or scanners other hospitals are using.
