The Masters (MSc) in Human Factors in Patient Safety is a unique programme for healthcare professionals who are responsible for the care of acute hospital patients.
The first of its kind in Ireland, it is accredited by the National University of Ireland (NUI) and the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI).
The two-year part-time programme comprises six modules of study – five taught modules, delivered by experts in human factors in patient safety, and a research dissertation module.
Designed to suit your busy schedule, the programme is offered using blended learning modalities – online elements, which you can access from home plus face-to-face classroom teaching.
Students attend RCSI for face-to-face teaching for three days per module, structured as one full-day per month. This is supplemented with online content and individual/ group-based learning activities.
The Research Methods module, offered in Year 2 as part of the Masters qualification, involves a five-day workshop plus online content.
