Professor Jeffrey Braithwaite has recently returned from a series of visits to Europe in May-June, 2014. He attended conferences and meetings as well as conducting a lecture tour, visiting and presenting at Copenhagen Business School, Denmark; The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden; Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands; and in the United Kingdom, at The University of Birmingham; Newcastle University; King’s College London and University College London.

Amongst his talks, one proved to be the most popular, and stimulated much interest. It is based on his work with Professor Erik Hollnagel from the University of Southern Denmark [see http://www.erikhollnagel.com/] and Professor Bob Wears from the University of Florida, USA [see http://www.hscj.ufl.edu/directory/bio.aspx?id=1266] and articulates the case for resilient health care. This argues in essence that the health system should concentrate on Safety-II activities to complement the existing pre-occupation with Safety-I activities.  The distinction is between Safety-I, which predominantly looks at when things go wrong, to seeing health care through a Safety-II lens, and when things go right. This concept is captured in a video of Professor Braithwaite presenting and discussing these issues with colleagues in Sweden. His Swedish visit was hosted by world-leading expert in resilient health care, Professor Richard Cook [see http://www.ctlab.org/Cook.cfm].
