OBSTACLES TO PATIENT SAFETY
1. Cognitive Dissonance
What is our great fear in medicine? Hurting people. Not being good enough. And when we change a process for the better it inevitably implies that our PREVIOUS way of doing things was (at least relatively) harmful. To make a minor change for the better, we might have to accept we have been hurting people, maybe killing people (or putting them at risk of death) for years, even decades! – Dr Robert Farrell.
Cognitive Dissonance — the pain of accepting ego-dystonic facts — mitigates against an open, rational aggressive cycle of process improvement.
