Day 2!

What an amazing day! I though about so many things I had probably never thought about!

Several points I’m taking home:
-Be the change… Or better yet, be Cliff Hughes!
-Informed consent is not about a signature! It’s about COMMUNICATION!!
– Always include the patient in the shared decision making process! “No decision about me, without me”
-Phrase to forbid in our hospitals: “This is the way we’ve always done it” 🙅🏻
*And probably my favorite: the quality improvement projects! Greatly inspired by what the other residents are doing in their areas! Started: it takes a village, persistence, teamwork, preplanning, and writing all along the way! 📝

Can’t wait for tomorrow, we are going on a hike!

The Summer Camp I Never Dreamed Of

I can remember the last time I went to summer camp. I was still in grade school and I always looked forward to getting dropped off where the counselors would pump us full of sugar filled drinks and let us run around, playing games until we wore ourselves out. Now some 15 years later I find myself at the Telluride Sumer Camp, this time the setting is a little different. My camp peers aren’t from the same neighborhood, we come from all over the country with different professional paths and instead of us looking forward to getting dropped off and consuming sugar with some added water, we look forward to learning about patient safety from some of the industry leaders. We look forward to collaborating interprofessionally to discuss ideas around patient safety. We occasionally still play games but we never stop thinking about patient safety.
