patient safety

The Beginner's Mind

The Beginner's Mind

Healthcare could benefit from more eyes trained specifically at looking for red flags.  Conditions that may trigger high alerts and require mobilization of critical resources.  Developing apprentices of patient safety moves beyond just creation of rapid response teams. It requires a dedication of those on the frontlines of healthcare to evergreen training and learning. This sort of training may require innovative modalities of rapidly deploying experience and knowledge to those on the frontlines.  It may require physicians think a bit differently about the traditional physician to physician apprenticeship model.  It may require us to democratize medical knowledge.
