Reconstructing Medical Practice - Engagement, Professionalism and Critical Relationships in Health Care

The Institute of Education, in collaboration with RLCP, invites you to a seminar on 20th June entitled:

Reconstructing Medical Practice - Engagement, Professionalism and Critical Relationships in Health Care

Prof Christine Jorm will discuss her work based on studies of teaching hospital consultants in New South Wales examining why doctors are limited in their ability to lead change in the current system. Factors including uncertainly in the work environment and self-esteem influenced supportive relationships and the ability of doctors to admit error or engage with the system. It is argued that regulation, despite its recent proliferation, is a clumsy and limited approach to ensuring good care. By better valuing communicative interactions and workplace relationships, safe and satisfying medical practice can be reconstructed.

Prof Jorm holds doctorates in neuropharmacology and sociology, and is a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetics. She worked as an anaesthetist for more than 15 years before her interest in quality assurance in anaesthesia led rapidly to full-time cross-disciplinary work in patient safety and quality. She then developed policy and strategy for the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care until moving to Sydney University in 2010. She currently coordinates the professionalism theme of the Sydney Medical Program.

The seminar will be held in Room 731 from 6 pm to 7.30 pm at the Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H OAL.
