After the course students should be able to analyse how the health care system interacts with human physiology and cognition and technology. The aim is that the students should be able to apply a ”Human-Technology-Organisation” perspective in the design, development and evaluation of medical devices.

Moreover, they should be able to explain the principles of system safety and analyse factors contributing to mishaps and injuries in health care. The students should also be able to analyse the impact of medical technology on the work environment and patient safety and give examples of how this can be applied by medical engineers in the work for a positive progress on safety. As well as being able to reflect on how the organisation and the work environment affect patient safety.

Välkommen till kurswebben!

Alla kurser på KTH använder inte kurswebben fullt ut i dagsläget. Kurswebben är däremot alltid öppen för studenter. Som student kan bidra med material i kurswikin ( t ex föreläsningsanteckningar och lästips), ställa frågor och diskutera kursen med andra studenter. Modereringsfunktionen fångar upp obesvarade frågor till myndigheten KTH och skickar dem vidare till rätt instans. På kurswebben hittar du även schemainformation om kursen. Mer om hur kurswebben fungerar

Welcome to the course website!

All courses at KTH are not using the course web in full. The course web is however always open to students. Students can provide input into the course wiki (eg lecture notes and tips on useful readings), ask questions and discuss the course with other students. There is a moderator function that captures unanswered questions to the public agency KTH and sends them on to the proper authorities. You can find information about the course schedule aswell on the course web. More information about the course web.
