Abstract

Healthcare improvement initiatives have not led to expected changes in patient population outcomes over the last decade. This can, in part, be explained by overly reductionist approaches in medical practice and education. This article describes some insights and experiences using a Complex Adaptive Systems approach in the conceptualisation of a continuing professional education program and reflections on elements that led to enhanced practice behaviours and system improvements.
