Enacting resilience in everyday practice: steps along the journey

Posted by Garth Hunte on Saturday February 18th, 2017

The iterative work-in-progress of engagement and dialogue within a practice community in the process of adapting and implementing the ED context-specific Resilience Assessment Grid has provided a space for practitioners, patients, and leaders to share in a conversation together about where we are and where we want and need to go. It has led to critical conversations about how patients are cared for safely in a complex clinical environment, and generative in identifying gaps and actions to increase collective adaptive capacity while maintaining a safety margin. Industry and science can follow a similar methodology rooted in complexity-based models of meaningful engagement to facilitate a dialogue about how resilience emerges and can be supported in everyday practice.
