Dr Ken Catchpole is a research psychologist and human factors practitioner. He began research in healthcare in 2003, examining the mechanisms of teamwork and safety in surgery, and developing interventions to improve performance, while taking a semi-ethnographic approach to understanding the complex nature of safety, quality and human error in healthcare. After two and a half years based at the UK's foremost children's hospital, followed by six years at the University of Oxford, he joined Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in August 2011. Through popular and scientific articles, keynote addresses, and media coverage, most notably work with the Ferrari motor racing team and in surgical care, he has sought to engage a worldwide audience in the evaluation and improvement of safety and quality in healthcare. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
