This question and answer session was a highlight of EBPOM London 2020, it works as a standalone piece or as a companion piece to this talk here:

The discussion follows themes outlined in the presentation as our online audience asked a series of questions.

Some of the questions included in the discussion are "How should leaders deal with anxiety both in themselves and their team? What is the evidence on perceived command gradient in residents and the fear of looking inadequate in front of peers and superiors? Bad for patients, versus bad for me? The people at the top end, the older people within an organization, are often the most resistant to culture change, yet they have the most influence over culture, any advice? What defines the people who are ready for change?"

Conversational in tone this piece was first heard on the "TopMedTalk stage" at Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM) for more details go now to

Presented by Monty Mythen and Desiree Chappell with Lee Fleisher, Emeritus Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, University of Pennsylvania.
