Kevin McCaffrey is a paediatric intensivist in Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane. In this great talk Kevin challenges our preconceptions, our cognitive dispositions to respond, our biases, if you will, and asks us to look beyond the man in the skirt.
We’ve all been to morbidity and mortality conferences and said to ourselves, “I would never have done that”. That is bias – blindspot bias. So, open your eyes to some of your own biases and become a little more open-minded.
