Learning review workshop with Dr Ivan Pupulidy and Prof Crista Vesel
Te Tāhū Hauora Health Quality & Safety Commission is excited to bring you the opportunity to attend an in-person learning review workshop with the developers of the method, Dr Ivan Pupulidy and Prof Crista Vesel.
The purpose of a learning review is to learn and improve in a way that allows you, the reviewer, to understand the realities of everyday work to uncover how harm occurs, minimise risk in the system and support health care workers to do the right thing.
This practical workshop focuses on the learning review approach and is designed to help you develop your skills in:
- facilitating learning reviews
- developing network of influence maps (event mapping)
- creating learning products (system-focused learning and actions for improvement).
Dr Ivan Pupulidy
Dr Ivan Pupulidy created the US Forest Service Human Performance, Innovation and Organizational Learning team to focus on understanding risk in complex adaptive systems and foster a culture of learning in the agency. Ivan developed the learning review, a process that replaced serious accident investigation in the service and offered a new way to view accidents and normal work. His ability to integrate academic research with real-world application comes from his varied life pursuits.
Ivan is currently a professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he teaches learning-based safety and human potential for the advanced safety and engineering management master’s degree. His courses, like his career, focus on risk and safety in complex systems and high-risk environments, such as wildland firefighting, aviation, military and medicine. Ivan earned a master of science degree in human factors and systems safety at Lund University in Sweden, under Prof Sidney Dekker, and completed his PhD in organisational transformation at Tilburg University in the Netherlands.
Prof Crista Vesel
Prof Crista Vesel is an adjunct professor for the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where she inspires master’s-level student practitioners to view safety as a synthesis of relationships, culture and communication and to move toward a language of learning in their workplaces.
As a human factors specialist, she has helped government agencies and companies around the world conduct learning reviews and language reviews. Crista holds a bachelor’s degree in communication and earned a master of science degree in human factors and systems safety with Prof Sidney Dekker, who introduced the ‘New View’ of human error to the safety world. Her research into the importance of language in workplace safety has added to academic and practical knowledge in a variety of industries. She is currently pursuing a PhD in organisational leadership.
Together, Ivan and Crista assist organisations in learning reviews, which offer a new way to view accidents, incidents and normal work in complex environments and can lead to learning from the system, the culture and the people in their care. This approach advocates for a shift in how we look at events of all kinds, including those that diverge from ‘work as imagined’.
