June 16, 2020 | Second Victim of Harm: Coping After Things Go Wrong
Presented by Dr. J. Bryan Sexton

July 21, 2020 | The Surprisingly Robust Science of Self Compassion
Presented by Dr. Carrie Adair
One of the cruelest voices we hear can be the one that is in our own heads. Despite often hearing that we should be hard on ourselves to succeed, research shows that self-criticism prevents us from overcoming setbacks and achieving our goals. This session will demonstrate robust evidence for, and opportunities to practice, a different internal voice – one of self-compassion.
August 18, 2020 | Improvement Readiness in Healthcare: Introducing a Metric that assesses the capacity within a work setting to start and sustain quality improvement efforts

November 17, 2020 | Patient Safety Leadership WalkRounds: Links Safety Culture, Burnout and Workforce Well-Being
Presented by Dr. J. Bryan Sexton
Good visits from senior leaders can be remarkably potent for safety culture, engagement and workforce well-being. Doing it wrong, however, can have the opposite effect – and really upset the apple-cart. Here we walk through the evidence and the conduct of these rounds.
December 15, 2020 | The Pursuit of Happiness: Methods vs. Mythology
Presented by Dr. J. Bryan Sexton
