Janet Anderson and Peter Jaye presented at the second Safety Connections Conference that took place on Wednesday 14th May at Guy’s Campus, King’s College London. The session was on a Resilience Approach to Healthcare. It involved a presentation and discussion about the move from a reactive ‘safety 1’ to proactive ‘safety 2’ culture, and the process of exploring best safety practice rather than looking only for its absence.
