Who is Ben Lawton? The one time member of the Virgin cabin crew left the high life to make a difference. By day (and occasionally night) he works as a paediatric emergency consultant at Lady Cilento in Brisbane. He is also one of the founders of an amazing paediatric blog.

In this talk, Ben explains how simulation can drive change. With better hair than Limahl he reminds us that we shouldn’t be doing simulation for simulations sake but to drive change and to improve patient care.
