‘The Quiet Revolution in QI: Safety-II and the Return of Practical Expertise’ – Andrew Smaggus and Suzette Woodward | Q Community – webinar recording and slides

‘Safety II’ (I like the PreAccident Investigation Podcast, there used to be a good Australian one, and of course Sidney Dekker’s writing) – along with urban development (see @strongtowns from @clmarohn, and I also like @wrathofgnon) and asset-based community development (see @CormacRussell, and of course John McKnight), seem to me to be humanistic, applied, intelligent applications of systems thinking/complexity/cybernetics which deserve very much to be part of the same universe.

13:00 – 14:00

In this session, Canadian health researcher Andrew Smaggus shared his clear-sighted and challenging overview of the major transformation currently taking place in QI, as described in his recent BMJ Quality and Safety article, ‘Safety-I, Safety-II and burnout: how complexity science can help clinician wellness’ (closed access, but Q members can access for free).

Followed by a brief conversation with a leading UK voice in patient safety and Safety-II, Suzette Woodward, and a Q&A.
