Dr Ian Rechner MB BS BSc FRCA FFICM

Institution:

Consultant Intensivist, Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading

Just starting my 10th year as a consultant in Reading, having trained in Oxford, Brisbane, Portsmouth and Exeter. This following a childhood in Zimbabwe, along with work in South Africa. My personality trait is very much "process" driven, which might explain my interest in technology and its use in healthcare. The ICU clinical information system (Philips ICCA) is developed to reduce arduous mundane processes which can be error ridden if completed by a tired healthcare worker. The display of a multitude of information to inform clinical decisions and the use of activity data to establish funding for healthcare provision. In addition I am the UK clinical expert for closed loop ventilation delivered by the Hamilton ventilator, another piece of excellent technology. I am currently the clinical director for the ICU and am the Regional Advisory for ICM for the Oxford deanery. I have a further interest in the use of technology and simulation to train healthcare workers in a safe environment.

Professor Robert J. Stone BSc (Hons), MSc, C.Psychol, AFBPsS, FIEHF, Eur.Erg, FIoN

Institution:

Professor of Interactive Multimedia Systems within the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Birmingham

A Chartered Psychologist and Fellow of the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors, Stone was the Research Director for the UK Human Factors Integration Defence Technology Centre (MoD/Dstl-funded from 2003 to 2012), where many of his projects addressed human-centred design and evaluation methodologies for virtual environmentbased training and interactive visualisation applications, including surgical and mental health therapies. Stone’s pioneering surgical task analysis efforts in the mid-1990s led to the development of a suite of simulated perceptual-motor tasks for a unique laparoscopic cholecystectomy basic surgical skills VR trainer (MIST), which was marketed for nearly a decade by Mentice of Sweden and is still in use across the globe today. His Human Factors efforts were also instrumental in the development of a prototype mastoidectomy simulator, funded by the EU as part of a project called IERAPSI. Between 1997 and 2005, he held the position of Director of Virtual Reality Studies for the North of England Wolfson Centre for Minimally Invasive Therapy (Manchester Royal Infirmary). From 1999 to 2002, Stone sat on a working party on behalf of the Royal College of Surgeons’ Joint Committee on Higher Surgical Training (JCHST) investigating the assessment of surgical training and competence and, in January 2000, passed the Royal College of Surgeons of England’s Basic Surgical Skills course. Stone was a Human Factors consultant to the US Office of Naval Research-funded Pulse!! Virtual Healthcare Project (led by Texas A&M University Corpus Christi). He has also acted in the role of ergonomics consultant to a MedLINK/DoH-sponsored project addressing the development of a new generation of endoscopic surgical support robots. Today, he is a Human Factors & Simulation consultant at the Hollier Simulation Centre (Good Hope Hospital), and collaborates closely with the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, researching future simulation and interactive technology opportunities for post-trauma/postoperative physical and psychological rehabilitation. In 2011, Stone was awarded the MoD Chief Scientific Advisor’s Commendation for his contributions to defence science and technology.
