In his best selling book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell examines the factors that contribute to high levels of success. Gladwell considers why the majority of Canadian ice hockey players are born in the first few months of the year, how Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates achieved his extreme wealth, and why the Beatles became one of the most successful musical acts in human history. Throughout his book, Gladwell theorises how historical and cultural circumstances can pave the way for such phenomenal success.
What can the healthcare simulation industry learn from a similar exploration of its own past, present, and future? Simulation Evangelist,​ Lance Baily has applied Gladwell's theories to the industry and will explain why his projects, including and, have made such huge global impacts in just five short years.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Experience the history of simulation in healthcare told from the perspective of a current champion.               
  2. Understand how technologies became fully adopted in other industries like aviation.
  3. Expand knowledge of modern day tools, which can be used to increase the demand for patient safety and simulation in your programme.​
