In S3 E8 I am delighted to speak to Dr Adrian Plunkett, Consultant Paediatric Intensivist at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Founder of the incredible Learning from Excellence ( LfE) platform about his work and the evolution of the platform to date. As testament to the global impact of the "philosophy, practice and social movement", he has created, I am equally delighted to introduce my Emergency Physician Colleague at Royal Hobart Hospital, Dr Ray Siauw. Ray is our co-DEMT and recipient of the 2018 ACEM Wellbeing award for his work establishing the LEX platform inspired by Adrian's work at LfE. ( full Bios in episode)
This conversation is a wonderful testament to the power of momentum, inspiration and building coalitions and communities of practice to make positive change in healthcare.
Adrian and Ray discuss the practicalities and challenges of "making things happen" and organisational change and innovation in healthcare.
Adrian is also the co-host of the fabulous Being Better together podcast with Dr Chris Turner, founder of Civility Saves Lives, my guest in S3 E5( link below) and we continue our discussion of safety 2 thinking and practice in healthcare and the use and application of appreciation inquiry.
I was keen to discuss Adrian's past, present and planned future research work adding to the qualitative and qualitative evidence to support positive feedback and appreciative practice in healthcare.
I thoroughly enjoyed re-listening to this conversation and whilst acknowledging that we did perhaps only scratch the surface, there are undoubtedly pearls for pause and thought here I will return to again and again.
