Abstract: Increasing number of accidents caused by the complex interactions of socio, technical and environmental factors have shown the limitations of traditional safety techniques. System dynamics simulation modelling is a powerful approach for addressing complex non-linear issues. We utilised system dynamics approach to model and simulate dynamic factors contributing to dispensing errors and backlog in a hospital pharmacy to facilitate holistic comprehension of factors impacting system performance and effects of system changes.
