Welcome back to Season 3 Episode 1. I am delighted to introduce Dr Todd Fraser. Todd is an Intensive care specialist and aeromedical retrieval physician currently living and working in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. He has held director and senior leadership roles wearing both of these hats. Todd is also an experienced medical educator and supervisor of training. He is the co-founder of digital platform Osler Tech.
This conversation explores Dr Fraser's expertise and particular interests at the intersection between teaching, training and supervision, patient safety and clinical governance. We discuss his own career trajectory and journey to date, the inspiration and impetus which led him to co-found Osler several years ago and the evolution of the platform to date.
Familiar themes are revisited, including the art of our practice and teaching and training for technical and non-technical skills. I particularly found value in our discussion of longevity of practice and maintenance of skills and performance as specialist.
Todd shares his perspective as medical educator and supervisor and explores the role of the supervisor, utility of the portfolio, feedback and art of honest self-appraisal.
We discuss patient and clinician safety, risk and error and medicine, the sequelae of adverse outcomes and the role technology like Osler might have in future healthcare practice for organisations and individuals. I left this conversation with much to ponder for myself and my profession but hopeful for a future where we use smart and innovative technology to benefit our patients and each other.
