It has been said that the Canadian health care system is a system of pilot projects: islands of excellence in a sea of challenges. In recent years, much work has been done to try to highlight and disseminate successful projects to improve quality, access and equity - and much remains to be done to ensure that we are not all continually trying to reinvent the wheel.

But in the area of learning from each other's failures, we are even further behind. In the policy world, the clinical world and the research world, sharing failures is discouraged - let alone celebrating them. Dr. Danielle Martin will discuss why the health care system needs to learn to scale up both our successes and our failures, and how we might begin to do so.
