Article English OPEN
Rowlands, Sam ; Sujan, Mark-Alexander ; Cooke, Matthew (Professor of clinical systems design) (2010)

Key message points\ud - Appreciation of human factors can provide useful insights into the reduction of risks through intuitive device design and the management of contributory factors in the environment. \ud - Risks of implants relate to the way in which devices are designed and used rather than to their pharmacological properties.\ud - The risks associated with the use of contraceptive implants include non-insertion and deep insertion
