    episode 20: the difference between diversity, inclusion and equity

    episode 20: the difference between diversity, inclusion and equity

    Join our new orthohub see one do / one episode on the difference between diversity, inclusion and equity with Johnson & Johnson’s Executive Board members, Hani Abouhalka and Lucy Morrisey!

    Discover what exactly is it - is it some passing fad that we need to be seen to doffing our cap at to tick a box, or is it something we should all be putting right at the core of what we do?

    Our two special guests help us explore this in our own particular way!

    Hani Abouhalka is the company group chairman for Johnson & Johnson medical devices in Europe, the Middle East & Africa and is responsible for J&J's medical device businesses encompassing surgical technology, orthopaedics, cardiovascular and specialty solutions. He is the executive sponsor of the Women's Leadership & Inclusion employee resource group and a board member of the Johnson & Johnson Foundation, a charity responsible for managing J&J's community impact programme.

    We are also fortunate to be joined by Lucy Morrisey, who was previously blessed to have been Kash and Pete's boss at Barts as the Divisional Manager for Emergency Care and Trauma. She has previously spent time at the UCL Institute of Health Equity, as well as in senior management roles within some of London’s largest hospitals where she led large service transformation agendas. Lucy took the role of ‘Silver Command’ for the NHS cyber-attack and the London Bridge terrorist attack. She is now a director in the Strategic Capabilities team at Johnson & Johnson and the Women’s Leadership Initiative Pillar Lead for UK and Ireland. 

    Lucy discusses her experiences of diversity and inclusion and brings a uniquely broad lens covering healthcare, the NHS and the corporate world. She also tells us just how much she misses working with orthopaedic surgeons…

    In this wide-ranging conversation we cover many different topics including:
    • what exactly are diversity, inclusion, equality and equity and why do they even matter?
    • the value of role modelling, mentoring and sponsorship
    • why do we need to change if everything is working fine as it is?
    • is diversity and inclusion just trendy and “woke”, or does it hold real value?
    • what does it look like when it’s done well?
    • why would anyone ever want to become a healthcare manager?
    • how orthopaedics often comes at the bottom of diversity tables and how best to address this
    • are certain professions more appropriate for men and women?
    • the role of unconscious bias
    • what is it like being at the receiving end of dismissive behaviour and how to respond?
    • stereotypes within surgery and in orthopaedics
    • how diversity and inclusion vary around the world
    • what can people in positions of privilege do to engage and to feel less awkward when discussions about diversity and inclusion arise
    • and how can we all bake this into what we do for the benefit of ourselves, our colleagues, and our patients

    episode 18: how to build a million-dollar healthcare business

    episode 18: how to build a million-dollar healthcare business

    We are joined in the studio by 2 special guests for this fun episode.

    Virtually all of us have had an idea for an app or a company at some point in our lives (and not always healthcare-related), but it very rarely goes any further- until we see someone else getting millions in investment a few years later and we are left kicking ourselves at what might have been!

    Well if you have ever had an idea for a product or a business, this is the podcast for you!

    In this episode we talk about how to take an idea and develop it, who to approach and when, how to bring in the right people to grow your company, when and how to bring in investment, and how to protect your interests.

    We use a healthcare business as a basis for our discussion, but the principles, lessons and tips are applicable to any start-up in any field.

    Our special guests are Ash Kalraiya and Anton Lin.

    Ash is an orthopaedic resident (surgical trainee) and the founder and CEO of Medishout, healthcare’s first one-stop app to help hospitals predict problems and prevent bottlenecks so that staff can focus on patient care. Medishout have been chosen to join Microsoft’s AI for Social Impact programme, which aims to develop Artificial Intelligence solutions to improve people’s lives around the world. They have recently closed a million pound funding round.

    Ash describes his journey and how he went from an idea one morning when he had to cancel 3 operations due to a faulty light bulb above the operating table, to developing a company that has raised over $1.5 million dollars in investment, and is continuing to grow.

    But how do you do it if you have limited money, business and IT experience?

    What’s it like to then receive a million pounds in funding- and how do you spend that money??

    Ash tells us about the challenges, pitfalls and some of the missteps along the way- such as what do you do when you wake up in a foreign country to a barrage of irate error messages and have no apparent way of fixing it!

    He opens up about something that many medics have not experienced before and was certainly new to him- the concept of rejection. Ash tells us about the times that things didn’t work out the way he had planned, how he bounced back and succeeded, and what skills he has developed now that he didn’t possess before.

    Ash also talks about how to pitch for investment and what makes a good pitch. He speaks our language and also the language of Venture Capitalists, and so is excellent at guiding us through the maze.

    Anton is the money man.

    He completed a law degree at Oxford and then trained at Sandhurst and was a Captain in the British Army for 5 years. He has an MBA from Insead and is a Partner at Steed Capital, a Venture Capital Fund. Anton is also the Head of Strategy at Cognism, a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Statecraft and a mentor on the NHS Clinical Entrepreneurship Programme
    He gives us a unique insight into what medics are good at and not so good at. He also talks about topics such as whether medics should leave their comfort zone and take time out of training / work to focus on the business, or to do it alongside the day job. Anton tells us what it is that investors are looking for in a business idea that will convince them to finance it. He also discusses Intellectual Property and secret recipes!

    This is our most fun and wide-reaching episode yet so there really is something in it for everyone, even far beyond healthcare!

    episode 17: foster the impostor – educating surgeons

    episode 17: foster the impostor – educating surgeons

    We are joined by a special guest who is dear to us and a valued friend of orthohub, Lisa Hadfield-Law. 
    Lisa has worked as a surgical education consultant for over 25 years and has trained over 15,000 surgeons from 68 countries within Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific. During this time, she has been an official advisor to AO Trauma & AO Spine and has also been the education advisor to the British Orthopaedic Association and the Royal College of Surgeons for over a decade.
    Lisa has a Masters in Higher Professional Education and is a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Educators.
    Earlier in her career, Lisa was awarded Nurse of the Year by the Royal College of Nursing and the Department of Health, and more recently she was awarded the British Orthopaedic Association’s Presidential Merit Award in 2018.
    Having been immersed in both cultures, Lisa is in a unique position to provide educational advice to surgeons.

    In this wide-ranging conversation, we discuss:
    ·       how Lisa got into medical education
    ·       what the role of an educationalist actually is
    ·       dealing with surgeons
    ·       Kash and Pete’s first encounters with Lisa…
    ·       good and bad learning environments
    ·       how to make feedback useful and actionable
    ·       dealing with trainees in difficulty…
    ·       …and the concept of the “trainer in difficulty”
    ·       and impostor syndrome (even Pete Bates experiences it!)
