June 21, 2021: Approaching Crisis With A Different Mindset: Best Possible Solutions Will Emerge by Engaging All Without Fear or Favour
Roundtable Discussion and Workshop: Tuesday, June 1st, 2021,  0930-1130h EST
As the SARS-CoV-2 crisis has shown, prevailing approaches to crisis management have largely failed, as much at the policy level as the local level. The obvious question would be – if our approaches have failed, what are some of the underlying reasons, and how could it be done more effectively? This roundtable discussion/workshop will focus on looking at crises with a different mindset – one that seeks out to understand the interconnections and interdependencies behind a systemic problem and that a-priori explores how potential interventions may – positively and negatively – affect the system’s behaviour as a whole. This session brings together academic researchers who will lay the scholarly foundations and health system leaders who will share a series of case studies from the practitioner’s perspective. A lively exchange with cumulate in real-time application of complexity thinking principles. 
Register for this joint virtual conference session through the NHLC conference website or by emailing Natalija Svo or Shawn Drake.
