Resilient health care in practice
This presentation, part of the ISQua Global Leaders Lecture Series, will examine what the current evidence tells us about how to reduce medical errors, what techniques work, and where. We will examine two different types of thinking about patient safety—Safety-I and Safety-II approaches—that help us understand how best to make things safer in complex health care environments. The safety-II approach argues: instead of focusing on things going wrong, we must also direct our attention to things going right: when health care is resilient in practice. We will discuss this new paradigm, and its potential for widespread application.
Objectives of the session:
• Discuss the contrasting approaches: the patient Safety-I and Safety-II perspective;
• Assess how often things go right and wrong;
• Consider this in the context of complexity science;
• Consider practical examples from our three books and work on resilient health care.
