Valerie Fenster to Speak at Upcoming Human Factors Conference

April 29, 2019

Join Kaleidoscope Innovation’s Director of Insights and Human Factors Valerie Fenster for a joint interactive roundtable discussion at the 5th Human Factors & User Experience for Medical Device Design, Engineering Device Safety and Development through Usability Testing and Risk Mitigation May 1-2, in San Diego, California.

Fenster and co-presenter Conne Mara Bazley, Vice President of RB Designs, will facilitate a discussion regarding “Incorporating Proper Complaint Documentation for Review within Human Factors Information.” Drawing on their own experiences in a variety of Human Factors leadership roles Fenster and Bazley will highlight the challenges that arise throughout the complaint process, and then facilitate a discussion for how to avoid and address those issues.

“I think it will be a cathartic session for this group of highly experienced Human Factors experts,” said Fenster. “We all know there’s a natural tendency for the blame to fall in a few common areas, but there’s often other overlooked root causes.”

Fenster’s career includes a variety of Human Factors leadership roles at companies such as Amgen and Abbott. Her depth of expertise contributes to Kaleidoscope’s ability – as a full-service insights, design and development firm – to provide Human Factors support at any stage of the product development process. The Kaleidoscope Human Factors team looks at the whole picture: the device, the product labeling, promotional material and more, ensuring the entire system works end-to-end for the intended user, use and use environment.

Kaleidoscope is honored to be an official sponsor and exhibitor of this event that is bringing together thought leaders in Human Factors for medical device design. Attending with Fenster will be Kaleidoscope’s Associate Director of Strategic Marketing Christina Goehrig.
