Informed Consent and QI-Telluride Day

Yesterday there was extensive talk on informed consent but seemed to be discussed mainly in context of surgery and medicine. As I am a resident in psychiatry and by virtue of patient population I provide care for, informed consent becomes a challenging problem to tackle. It would be interesting for future meetings to approach this issue from different specialties and not only medicine and surgery.

The QI project presentations were excellent and would recommend for future more time dedicated to that.

Day 1 of Telluride

It has been inspiring to be surrounded by colleagues from an array of different specialties who also are interested in patient safety. In the various lectures provided on day 1, a common thread was story telling in relation to patient safety. The teeter-totter game was such a great opportunity to bond with colleagues and being able to effectively communicate.
