Learning and Culture in Healthcare

From #SMACC2019 Vic Brazil, Eve Purdy, Jenny Rudolph, Chris Hicks, Simon Carley & Jenny Vaughan discuss learning and culture in healthcare.

Simulation is a great learning tool but how do we organise simulation activities when we are resource and time poor?

How do we translate learnings from Sim into the real world, when the stakes and stress levels are high?

How do we encourage junior staff to be honest with their feedback?

How do we set a culture that promotes an open learning environment? The fastest way to discourage feedback is to ask people to be honest but do nothing about it.

Tune in to a discussion on learning and culture in healthcare from our stellar panel.
