The Healthcare Fatigue Forum brings together experts and interested parties in the field of healthcare fatigue to learn, develop and implement fatigue risk management in health and social care professions.

Building on the successful, Fight Fatigue campaign and the global FRMS Forum, the Healthcare Fatigue Forum provides the opportunity to discuss the issues of fatigue in healthcare, learn from the experiences of other industries where fatigue risk management solutions are used, and participate in setting future strategies.

The Forum aims to create a collaboration to enhance the agenda for effective management of fatigue in health and social care to benefit the health and social care system, clinicians and patients.
The Healthcare Fatigue Forum will
“Expand our knowledge of the issues and challenges, learning from other industries and shaping a fatigue management systems approach”


Annual Meeting

The Forum holds an annual meeting for attendees to hear about the latest developments, develop collaborations and network. The inaugural Healthcare Fatigue Forum was held in 2023 in Manchester. 

The next meeting will be held in Birmingham on 5th November 2024.
