Telluride Experience Day One: I can’t believe I finally have the opportunity to meet and learn about Patient Safety from this amazing group of Champions for Change in the field of Patient Safety. Coming into this experience, I had no idea what to expect. Here are a few questions I had before coming: What experiences do I bring and what can I share about patient safety? How will this experience impact the way I care for my patients, interact with other healthcare providers, and educate those around me? Can I really leave here with the tools/resources to make a difference in my medical community?

After only one day, I realize that this will be one of the most influential experiences in my career in medicine. I am looking forward to learning more about the language, culture and tools in Patient Safety to be an effective leader in my community.
