"Diagnosis versus Change"

The theme of HESSD-01 is "Diagnosis versus Change"-blending human error, safety and their relation to system- and organization development. The focus of many efforts to understand human error is on diagnosis- what can go wrong; what went wrong; and why? A great challenge, however, lies in change- implementing lessons about failure in design and organizational practice.
