Surgical Grand Rounds

As part of the Surgical Grand Rounds Lecture Series, Professor Peter McCulloch and Dr Lauren Morgan talk about investigating serious surgical incidents and how human factors science can help us.

Lauren Morgan

B.Sc. Ph.D


  • Human Factors Research Scientist

My work focusses on investigating how to make the care delivered in the NHS safer and more reliable. My background is in Human Factors/ergonomics, and I am based within the Quality, Reliability, Safety & Teamwork Unit. 

Our team's current work is focused on evaluating the effect of different approaches to improving safety in healthcare, as part of the 'Safer Delivery of Surgical Services' research project.

I am also interested in design and am currently involved in a hospital CQUIN project to translate the documentation of patients vital signs from a paper based to an electronic system. I set up and lead Oxford University Hospitals technology usability forum. 

As well as teaching both in Oxford and at other Universities, I am an advisory board member for the Confidential Reporting System in Surgery (CORESS) and an active member of the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors. 

I am always interested to learn more about human factors in healthcare, so whether you have similar interests, or want to find out more, please feel free to get in touch.
