  • SimMan SimulationThe Center for Safety in Emergency Care (CSEC) is a research consortium of the University of Florida, Dalhousie University, Northwestern University, and Brown University, funded by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

    The mission of CSEC is to be a global center for learning about improving patient safety and reducing preventable injuries in emergency care. The Center will develop programs in improving patient safety and reducing preventable injuries in emergency care.

    The Center will develop expertise in four domains fundamental to patient safety research:

    1. cognitive psychology of error and human performance;
    2. clinical epidemiology of adverse events in emergency care;
    3. use of information technology in error reduction and performance; and
    4. application of human factors engineering to safety.
