Article
The research-practice gap has been highlighted as a barrier to effective practice in human factors and ergonomics (HFE). There is also evidence of a theory-research gap that may be limiting the scientific evidence base of HFE. The purpose of this study was to examine trends in journal publications, especially relating to the research-practice gap a...

Various human factors classification frameworks have been used to identified causal factors for clinical adverse events. A systematic review was conducted to identify human factors classification frameworks that identified the causal factors (including human error) of adverse events in a hospital setting. Six electronic databases were searched, ide...
Article
The research-practice gap is of concern in human factors/ergonomics (HF/E) as there is a belief that HF/E research may not be making an impact on practice in the 'real world'. A potential issue is what researchers and practitioners perceive as important in HF/E journal articles as a primary means of conveying research findings to practitioners. Thi...
Article
Audio acuity in any communication system is important to facilitate the extraction of pertinent information, none more so than in the aviation industry where safety is paramount. The present research investigates the effects of both active noise reduction headphones and passive noise attenuation headphones on intelligibility with two types of maske...

Introduction: Fall-related injuries among older people is a significant public health issue. Method: To identify medical, general health and lifestyle factors associated with falls and multiple falls in older persons, a representative sample of people aged 65+ years living in the community in New South Wales (NSW) Australia were surveyed regardi...

Background: Human factors and ergonomics (HF/E) is an applied discipline and a profession that demands ecologically valid and practical research. However, there is concern that while HF/E research may be meeting the needs of researchers, it may not have fully met the needs of practitioners nor made a high impact on practice in the 'real world'. Thi...
Article
Most people within the IEHF community would acknowledge that there are differences between the challenges that researchers and practitioners face on a day-to-day basis. Furthermore, most would probably agree that there is much benefit from collaboration between the two groups. In this paper, we contend that more could be done to increase the level...
Article
This article compares the epidemiological profile of injury-related hospitalized morbidity of international tourists in New South Wales (NSW) with the hospitalized injury profile of NSW residents. Injury-related hospitalizations were identified from the NSW Admitted Patients Data Collection during 1 July 2000 to 30 June 2009. Injuries were identifi...

Background: All deaths that occur following healthcare-related procedures in Australia are required to be investigated by a coroner to assist in identifying any factors that may have contributed to the death. Human factors classification tools can assist in the identification of causal factors for these types of adverse events. Aim: To assess the a...
Article
Significant discord has been aired regarding the widening research-practice gap in several disciplines (e.g. psychology, healthcare), especially with reference to research published in academic journals. The research-practice gap has profound and wide-ranging implications for the adequacy of ergonomics and human factors (E/HF) research and the impl...
Article
Significant discord has been aired regarding the widening scientist-practitioner gap in several disciplines (e.g. psychology, healthcare), especially with reference to research published in academic journals. Very little research on this important issue has been identified in ergonomics and human factors (E/HF). Using an online questionnaire, pract...
