Talk by Professor Martin Elliott who is Gresham Professor of Physic and Co-Medical Director at The Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London (GOSH).
“There are surprising similarities between the aviation (and especially airline) industries and healthcare; especially cardiac surgery. Both involve highly trained and skilled people working in teams over unusual hours and in stressful circumstances whilst being responsible for the lives of others. How airlines mitigate its risks and investigates its disasters has important lessons for healthcare.
This lecture will explore these lessons, with examples from both camps, and concentrate on the human factors which govern the performance of high reliability organisations.”
