Trauma surgery, combat flying and polar exploration require professionals to work in risky conditions where error can lead to catastrophe. One key skill is recognising when a situation is getting out of control and finding a ‘place of safety’; another is to learn from mistakes without allowing self-confidence to be destroyed. 

This lecture explores how high-risk professionals can share insights relevant to medicine, helping clinicians to develop essential skills. 

With Phil Bayman (combat pilot) and Dougal Goodman (polar explorer).

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.
