K1: Keynote 1: How to move from fixed to growth mindset

Thursday, 3rd May
09:30-10:30

In this exciting opening keynote, you will hear different perspectives on mindset. A junior and senior doctor will reflect on their shared experience of giving and receiving feedback after a breakdown in communication on a busy night shift. A patient will share her story of receiving a misdiagnosis and how this led to a meeting with her radiologist that transformed both of their outlooks. Referencing the pioneering work of Carol Dweck, Ann Batenburg will reflect on both of these events and show how this shift from a fixed into a growth mindset is an essential part of developing quality improvement within an organisation. After the session the audience will be invited to consider their own mindset, what changes they could make and the impact this could have on improving outcomes for their patients.
