Becker’s Hospital Review has again named Pascale Carayon, the Leon and Elizabeth Janssen Professor in the College of Engineering at UW-Madison, to its “50 patient safety experts to know” list.

Carayon, who applies human factors engineering to healthcare systems to improve patient safety, has been a fixture on the publication’s list since 2015. She is the only engineering researcher on the 2020 list.

Carayon also directs the interdisciplinary Wisconsin Institute for Healthcare Systems Engineering and the Center for Quality and Productivity Improvement at UW-Madison.
