On Kantian tendencies during the early corona pandemic in Germany

Feufel, Markus A. ; Schmid, Christine ; Westfal, Viola (2020-12-23)

Based on an ad hoc online survey about risk perception and preventive behaviours, we describe three chronological phases related to how people in Germany perceived the Corona pandemic between March 22 and May 10, 2020. In general, participants reported to be less concerned about their own risk than about the risk faced by others. However, a good portion of those who thought that they themselves...

Heuristics for designing user‐centric drug products: Lessons learned from Human Factors and Ergonomics

Feufel, Markus A. ; Rauwolf, Gudrun ; Meier, Felix C. ; Karapinar‐Çarkit, Fatma ; Heibges, Maren (2020-01-23)

Even the most effective drug product may be used improperly and thus ultimately prove ineffective if it does not meet the perceptual, motor and cognitive capacities of its target users. Currently, no comprehensive guideline for systematically designing user‐centric drug products that would help prevent such limitations exists. We have compiled a list of approximate but nonetheless useful strate...

Systemergonomische Gestaltung in der Patientenversorgung

Stahl, Maria (2020)

Ziel der Arbeit ist die Entwicklung eines Vorgehenskonzeptes für die systemergonomische Gestaltung medizintechnischer Geräte. Die Konzeptentwicklung erfolgt in Anlehnung an den Problemlösezyklus des „Systems Engineering“. Die Analyse relevanter Lösungsansätze aus den beiden Disziplinen Arbeitswissenschaft und Medizintechnikentwicklung bilden die Grundlage für die Konzeptentwicklung. Das systeme...

Performance metrics for ultrasound-guided needle placements, using a conventional monitor and an augmented reality head-mounted display

Rüger, Christoph (2019)

Purpose Augmented reality (AR) and head-mounted displays (HMD) are current subjects of investigation in medical practice. A commonly proposed use-case of AR-HMDs is to display data in image-guided interventions. Although technical feasibility has been thoroughly shown, effects of AR-HMDs on interventions are not yet well researched, hampering clinical applicability. Therefore, the goal of this...

Toward a framework for selecting behavioural policies: How to choose between boosts and nudges

Grüne-Yanoff, Till ; Marchionni, Caterina ; Feufel, Markus A. (2018-04-26)

In this paper, we analyse the difference between two types of behavioural policies – nudges and boosts. We distinguish them on the basis of the mechanisms through which they are expected to operate and identify the contextual conditions that are necessary for each policy to be successful. Our framework helps judging which type of policy is more likely to bring about the intended behavioural out...

How to Uncover Sources of Unwarranted Practice Variation: A Case Study in Emergency Medicine

Feufel, Markus A. (2018-05)

Forty years of statistical database analyses have demonstrated the existence of unwarranted practice variation in care delivery, that is, variations independent of medical need, evidence, or patient preference. Alas, little is known about the underlying mechanisms and thus finding interventions to reduce unwarranted variations remains difficult, hampering quality, equity, and efficiency of care...

Decisionmaking in practice: The dynamics of muddling through

Flach, John M. ; Feufel, Markus A. ; Reynolds, Peter L. ; Henrickson Parker, Sarah ; Kellogg, Kathryn M. (2017-05)

An alternative to conventional models that treat decisions as open-loop independent choices is presented. The alterative model is based on observations of work situations such as healthcare, where decisionmaking is more typically a closed-loop, dynamic, problem-solving process. The article suggests five important distinctions between the processes assumed by conventional models and the reality ...

Paper "Size Matters" Excel Data prepared for SPSS

Meier, Felix Christian ; Schöbel, Markus ; Feufel, Markus (2018)

The present excel file includes all data used for the study and it is prepared to be fed into SPSS. First column shows a number. Every car got number as it was collected during experiment. In the second column the pairs of legally and illegally parked cars are counted. In the third column and fifth column brand and model of each car are coded. The fourth column shows the values of a car brand s...
