PEXiS - performance experts in safety - behind human error
What's PEXiS?

PEXiS 1 is the first module in a series of Master's level courses developed by the VA Midwest Patient Safety Center exploring patient safety through a human performance perspective. The course teaches strategies developed in high-risk industries, accident analysis, and human factors methodology.

This module in the PEXiS curriculum introduces basic concepts about how people may contribute to failures and how they create safety within an inherently risky environment. You will learn about these concepts by analyzing multiple low frequency/high consequence accidents, engaging in exercises about predictable human behavior, and reading foundational material about human performance issues in safety.

As you progress through the readings you will encounter practical exercises that will both introduce, reinforce and demonstrate your grasp of this specific topic: complex factors that lie behind the label 'human error'.
