THis is the latest instalment in the “Lessons Hard Learned” series.
Recently I caught up with the SMACC crew at the Bedside critical Care conference in Cairns – FNQ. I took the opportunity to trap a couple of unsuspecting Irishmen into an impromptu podcast by the poolside.
Awesome conference and great vibe – mini-SMACC really. So this is a very casual chat with Drs Matthew MacPartlin @rollcagemedic (half of the I_C_N) and Doug Lynch @TheTopEnd (shows up on pretty much any blog).
The main theme is about the use of language in critical conversations – being accurate, honest and avoiding ambiguity in your semantics when dealing with high-stakes scenarios.
