The aim of Risky Business 2012 is to share new ideas on managing risk, patient safety, leadership, teamwork and improvement science from some of the highest achievers in other high-risk businesses, industries, sport, exploration, media, military, and the arts.
Day 1 will focus on understanding complex systems when things go wrong and Day 2 will be about finding solutions through changing culture, leadership / teamwork, improvement science and creativity.
The Risky Business London 2012 Symposium is targeted at clinicians, allied professionals, healthcare administrators as well as professionals from other high risk industries.
This is the fourth Risky Business Conference in London (with the first 3 all being sold out). We have also held 3 stand alone events in Boston and 1 in Cape Town. The idea is that if we are to make major strides forward in patient safety and improvement then we need to look at spheres outside of medicine to challenge us.
