Cognitive aids are visual prompts or decision guides, such as checklists or algorithms, which aim to reduce human error in critical processes by providing a supportive scaffolding that ensures tasks are performed and communicated appropriately. Unlike protocols or standard operating procedures, cognitive aids can be applied while a task is being performed. This reduces reliance on memory alone to perform tasks safely and effectively, and allows individuals to concentrate on other cognitive tasks, such as problem-solving and decision-making, while reducing the risk of cognitive overload, forgetfulness, distraction, fatigue or stress compromising the success of the task. They are particularly useful for critical steps that may not be readily recalled in high-pressure situations.
