The introduction of new medical devices (technologies) into complex systems usually includes usability evaluation (formative and summative) using Human Factors (Engineering) methods. This paper outlines the use of Hierarchical Task Analysis (HTA) to not only look at usability but also consider implementation in a complex system. Firstly, the macro system is mapped as a process model for a complex field exercise (simulation) for prehospital care following a chemical incident; and secondly the… Expand
