The aim of the workshop, affectionately referred to as the FRAMily meeting, is to share experiences from research and practice using the FRAM to analyse activities - how something has happened, how something happens, or how something could happen. Users are encouraged to share their experiences of from using the method, its strengths and weaknesses, and to provide ideas for further developments and enhancements. The workshop is sponsored by the Danish Association of Patient Safety.
The workshop is open to everyone regardless of their level of experience with the FRAM; the topics of the workshop will address the uses of the FRAM in a variety of fields. Previous workshops have featured the FRAM in work studies, performance management, investigations, planning, and design in different industries as well as academia.
Participating in these workshops provides an opportunity to:
Discuss and exchange experiences on the use of the FRAM for modelling and analysing socio-technical systems.
Receive support on your FRAM applications and industry projects.
Learn about the latest developments and application areas of the FRAM, including the FMV (FRAM Model Visualiser) and the FMI (FRAM Model Interpreter).
Get a broader perspective on the potential of the FRAM for other applications.
*Notification of acceptance/rejection usually communicated some weeks after the submission
Discussion topics, presentations, and papers
Participants are encouraged and expected to contribute actively to the workshop. All suggestions for contribution will be considered, however we are primary looking for three types of submissions:
Suggestions for discussion topics (with or without a presentation);
Suggestions for presentations, of ongoing or already completed work in industry and/or academia (without a paper);
Suggestions for presentations of ongoing or already completed work in industry and/or academia (with a paper).
For each type of submission, please provide a short abstract (about 200 - 400 words) with a summary of the work you would like to present or discuss and how you see your own role in that. All abstracts will be reviewed and comments to the authors will be provided.
It is traditional in these meetings to organise an additional half day tutorial (Master class!) as a refresher or introductory session for those that are interested, to be chaired by Erik Hollnagel and given by Jeanette Hounsgaard and Enrique Ruiz Zúñiga. Places are normally limited and light lunch is included.
