Hypothetical

The information technology revolution is providing unparalleled opportunities for re-designing the delivery of healthcare in the future. From how individual providers and teams interact, to integrating staff and patient wellbeing, the combination of data with intelligent design will change professional environments. This session examines what intelligent design could deliver from the perspectives of healthcare anthropology, problem facing systems, simulated testing and wellness.

Jesse Spurr

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.
