Lessons from COVID-19: A free virtual conference from “Risky Business”

The organizers of Risky Business, a unique patient safety conference that draws lessons for health care from a variety of other high-risk industries and endeavors, will host a 3-hour virtual event next Tuesday from London to talk about the intersection of science, medicine, technology and people in the safe delivery of care during the pandemic. Topics include cybersecurity, the changing nature of the doctor-patient relationship, modelling the virus, and the science of wellbeing. Speakers from the Imperial College of London, Zoom, British Airways, the Medical Protection Society, Formula One and more will be followed by remarks from Don Berwick of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement speaking about what health care may look like after COVID-19.

This complementary event is an opportunity to experience Risky Business’s unique approach to talking and learning about patient safety. Next spring, Boston will be the host city for a 1-day Risky Business conference organized by the Betsy Lehman Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, CRICO and other partners. Don’t miss this preview!
