Health Care Needs a New Kind of Hero to improve #ptsafety

Dr. Peter Pronovost posted a blog regarding the patient safety education in medical school. That is fascinating.   Recently, I had a chance to talk few friend’s high school kids. They want to study medicine and than want choose biology as pre-med for colleague. When I suggest them to learn more about engineering (systems thinking), IT (technology driven innovation), management ,etc. beyond biology. It seems foreign to them. Apperently their teacher didn’t catch up what is happening in the frontier of medicine (like Armstrong institue). Maybe the patient safety education need to extent to high school? There is a long way to go to create critical mass (of providers) to understand the limitation of “craftsmanship” medicine and willing to embrace a new kind of hero. ( Let us work together to move this forward.
