Having the ability to respond to anticipated or unfamiliar situations is critical in any healthcare setting. The challenge is understanding the structural, cultural, and relational factors that support or detract from this ability to respond and to recover. This presentation will explore how the concept of resilience supports this ability and how it relates to the goal of healthcare to support quality and safety.
