Welcome to our 5th Risky Business Paediatric Conference
Published: Mon 20 May 2019
Thank you for joining us for one of our most exciting Risky Business London Paediatric days.
We are enormously grateful to all our speakers for giving up their time and sharing their latest safety and improvement initiatives. In particular, we want to express our huge gratitude to our overseas speakers who have very kindly and generously come from afar to share their expertise.
Live Video in the Clinical Setting
The programme will begin with the controversial topic of live video recording in the clinical setting. We will then go on to look at human factors, and the issue of when to break standard operating procedures, going on to look at building great teams and a solid relationship between front-line staff and management.
Billy “Whizz” Monger
We are then extremely fortunate to introduce Billy “Whizz” Monger who lost both of his legs in a terrible F4 racing accident. Billy has an amazingly positive attitude that allowed him to return to motor racing within a year of his accident.
Everyday there seems to be media coverage of extraordinary medical innovations: we are pleased to hear from some of the people at the forefront of this technology revolution from Artificial Intelligence to running a virtual hospital.
Our emotions will then be tested as we hear from clinicians involved in dealing with the challenging issues surrounding communicating with families of beloved children with untreatable diseases.
During the final session we will hear from one of the most resilient paediatric hospitals in the world that continued serving the community while dealing with the most severe of droughts.
The Red Devils
Our final talk is from The Parachute Regiment’s display team - The Red Devils. Their professionalism, attention to detail and teamwork is second to none. We are indebted to them for ‘dropping in’ to tell their story and close a wonderful day.
We genuinely hope you are challenged, inspired and motivated to go back to your clinical settings and make positive changes in your hospital. We also hope you have fun in doing so.

Risky Business events are different from anything else in the safety world. Through the sharing of ideas outside one's own sphere of expertise, we can understand risk, quality and safety from different perspectives.
