Shirtless Man

Wow! I’m blown away by the Telluride Experience already on day 1. Errors and mistakes are part of being human. The quote by James Reason stuck out to me – “We cannot change the human condition, but we can change the conditions under which the humans work.” That starts exactly where we are at by educating the young healthcare professionals of today. Many of us can hear a story about an undesired outcome and think of numerous ways we would have done things differently. However, at the end of the day we must remember that, at some point, it will be us. To know we are not alone and to learn from ourselves as well as others is an invaluable lesson. I’m excited to see how this week will continue to shape and mold us into leaders in patient safety.
