Innovation from within: using video-reflexivity to improve patient safety

Activity: Talk or presentation / Performance / SpeechesTalk or presentation - at conferenceAcademic


In this presentation Jessica Mesman will take the opportunity to discuss her efforts to make a difference in practices related to patient safety. According to her the improvement of patient safety should not only be based on error-reducing activities, but also on a sophisticated understanding of the vigour of health care practices. The exploration of latent resources can be considered as a form of exnovation. This approach can be characterized as ‘innovation from within’. In her presentation she will outline an alternative research agenda and discuss the method of video reflexivity as a way to visualize the competencies frontline clinicians use to preserve adequate levels of safety within real-life complexities.
