Completing the Picture has grown in popularity since its inception in 2001 — and is now firmly fixed in the calendars of those who manage, maintain or procure medical devices. Completing the Picture is held twice a year with a symposium in Central England and another in Scotland.

Completing the Picture recognises that procuring, maintaining and managing medical equipment goes beyond the workshop, making it crucial that engineers incorporate the understanding of clinical and policy issues into their professional development plan.

  • An impartial and comprehensive educational programme
  • Refreshments throughout the day
  • Hot lunch
  • Exhibition area during breaks

    Cyber security and human factors - what it means for us

    Although we were unprepared for it, WannaCry was pretty simple: things stopped working and we blamed criminals. What would happen if data was lost or corrupted, and nobody understood? We will describe a case that ended up in the criminal courts and explain how the wrong people, the nurses, got to be blamed. Similar problems could occur in any hospital, and Prof. Thimbleby will explain the implications.
