About this group
Curiosity brings to mind images of inquisitive children (“…but why?..”), mad inventors and maybe even dead cats. But there is an increasing evidence that curiosity as a trait is not only desirable at a personal and organisational level but is also something that can be developed and nurtured to help achieve concrete improvements in patient outcomes and organisational development.
This SIG brings together people interested in the concept of Curiosity as a key competency for QI in its own right, share experiences of how curiosity helped or hindered and collectively explore questions such as “how is curiosity valued across organisations, healthcare sectors and professions?” and “What barriers persist within workplace cultures that suppress curiosity, and what strategies can we identify that might help to eliminate them?”.
