IUPESM Fellow: Anthony Charles Easty
Prof. Anthony Charles Easty
For the past ten years, my area of research focus has been the usability and safety of medical technologies throughout the health care system in a wide variety of environments of use, with a special focus on medication safety and safety in home care. I have participated in the establishment of a Healthcare Human Factors Group and the HumanEra Team comprising a total of fifteen expert staff, educated at the PhD and Masters levels in human factors engineering, cognitive psychology and biomedical engineering.
In July 2010, I was appointed the Inaugural Chair-holder of the Baxter Chair in Health Technology at the University Health Network/University of Toronto. This appointment allows me to focus full-time on research in health technology safety. I lead the Health Technology Safety Research Team, a team of eight PhD and Masters-trained individuals with academic preparation in biomedical engineering, human factors engineering and cognitive psychology.
For his contribution as Co-Chair, Organizing Committee, 13th IUPESM World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering 2015, held in Toronto, Canada.
