After being in the trenches for 3 months, Jesse, David and Swami talk about just how different will the medicine be in the future.
The pivoting, steering the dinosaurs, and the lessons learnt along the way.
One thing is certain, social inter-connectedness in healthcare is very important.

For his paid work, Jesse is a critical care nurse. Much to the dismay of his ever-patient (and infinitely more successful) wife, Jesse likes to use his “spare” time doing “volunteer” work in the form of conference organising, co-producing free, open-access healthcare simulation podcast Simulcast, producing nursing practice development blog and podcast Injectable Orange, and all manner of other healthcare, research and education pseudo-academic activities. An exercise science graduate, sport and functional fitness tragic, Jesse classes himself a lifelong student of teaching, learning, health and human performance. Jesse’s proudest roles are head cheerleader for his wife, and their near-adult daughter, and best friend and co-navigator of life to his young son living with autism and ADHD.
