In this episode, repeat guest and co-editor in chief of CJS Dr. Ed Harvey joins us to discuss “innovation”. Innovation is one of those buzzwords that everyone loves to throw around and use, but rarely do we actually think about what it means to do innovative work and how we might be more innovative. Dr. Harvey is an orthopedic surgeon at McGill University in Montreal, and is involved in several startups developing new devices. We’d love to hear your thoughts – what makes someone “innovative”? What can we do to create environments that encourage innovation? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at us @canjsurg.
