Tuesday 28th July, 2020 | 12.00pm-12.45pm

In complex hospital environments, health administrators utilise policies, procedures, budgets and administrative processes to achieve results. At the coalface, clinicians utilise clinical skills and experience to determine patient service needs with variable human, physical and financial resources to deliver patient care. There is often disparity between “Work-as-imagined” by healthcare administrators to “work-as-done” at the coalface. Dr Gardiner will provide personal insights into this world from both sides of the fence, and outline ways where the dichotomous efforts of both the “sharp” and “blunt” ends of the workforce can collaboratively work together to achieve sustained improvements in patient safety. Brought to you by the Discipline of Biomedical Informatics and Digital Health.
