Department of Computer Science designing IT to reduce drug dose error

Professor Harold Thimbleby, Department of Computer Science, Swansea University has been developing new forms of calculator that offer nurses a means of calculating drug dosages with numerous fail-safes built in to help ensure that an incorrect dose cannot be planned.

The impact of Professor Thimbleby’s research has been recently featured in Med-Tech Innovation in an article on ‘Designing IT to Reduce Drug Dose Error’, http://www.med-techinnovation.com/Articles/articles/article/70/Designing+IT+to+Reduce+Drug+Dose+Error
