A rare opportunity to hear and talk with one of the world’s most respected and forward-thinking health communicators, American surgeon and writer Dr Atul Gawande. Dr Gawande, author of bestsellers such as The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right and, most recently, Being Mortal: Illness, Medicine, and What Matters in the End, will be headlining a day-long forum for people working in the health and disability and aged care sectors.
The forum is in Wellington on Monday 18 May and is being hosted by the Health Quality & Safety Commission. It will focus on teamwork and communication, and aged and end of life care, and follows Dr Gawande giving last year’s prestigious Reith Lectures for the BBC. To read more please open the attached PDF.
