Managing Risk

What do a former Major General in the Australian army, an aviation safety adviser and a critical care doctor have in common – they are all invited faculty participating in a Risky Business specialty session during the fifth world congress of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery, which is now just nine weeks away, and will be held in the beautiful Australian tropical resort city of Cairns.

Problems and errors arise in many high-risk industries when human fallibility interacts with complex technology. Many industries have made significant advances towards cultural improvements, focusing on systems change, human-factors and team building.

The key to this session is that the lessons to be learned from high-risk industries can be applied to every day medical practices.

This is a not-to-be missed mini-congress will be held in the Cairns Convention Centre on Monday June 22nd, as a part of the Intensive Care meeting during the World Congress of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery, Cairns, Australia. June 21st – 26th.

The number of delegates who have now registered and or are members of the faculty/invited speakers, now totals well over 1500 participants. Further registrations are still flowing in on a daily basis with two months to go and we anticipate between 2000 and 2500 delegates by the start of the meeting. Cardiologists, surgeons, intensive care clinicians, anaesthesiologists and allied health professionals from 71 countries across the globe will attend the congress.

Invited speakers include renowned experts in the field of safety in healthcare, as well as highly acclaimed experts in managing high-risk situations.
