Many of us are still unsure about pushing the boundaries of innovation and our own belief about safety. Will any of the changes we make as a result of applying human factors in our work practices really benefit our workers and improve our performance? How would our bosses react, what if something goes wrong, how would the regulators view our initiatives.

Suzette Woodward is a paediatric intensive care nurse who for the last two decades has specialised in patient safety.  In this podcast she talks about her life in safety and her motivations. She raises the importance of rethinking the way we do safety and applying the latest concepts of safety-II, psychological safety and a just culture in healthcare.
