I so thoroughly enjoyed Day 2! This morning’s patient safety moment was a great reminder that mindfulness is a great quality to have, but that acting on mindfulness is how impact happens. I learned so many insightful, essential lessons today, and I think one thing that stuck out to a lot of us was the EHR statistics. It’s mind-blowing that this technology that was likely intended to improve record-keeping, quality, and safety is actually doing just the opposite.  In addition, Mr. Nance’s story of the 18-year-old man who prevented what would have been the second largest aircraft incident really resonated with me. It reminded me of the first follower of the naked dancing man: despite feeling uncomfortable, he voiced his concerns because Mr. Nance empowered him as a team-member. What an inspiration.

I am excited to implement what I’ve learned into my own practice and schooling!
