I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting for this conference, but my expectations have been exceeded! I think I have had a couple of lightbulb moments, and it’s only day one. From exercises in reflection, to a heart-breaking story of medical errors leading to the loss of a loved one, to a silly but effective team-building exercise, the day proved to pull me to new and uncomfortable places emotionally and mentally. I know that I’ve made mistakes, but I’ve realized that I’ve also grown as a provider and a person, and as well recognized and prevented adverse patient outcomes from reflecting on my past experiences. I’m so excited for each coming day, and to ultimately reflect on my time here.
