☑ Falling Through The Cracks – Greg’s Story – November 6

Falling Through the Cracks: Greg’s Story

18th Floor Auditorium
600 University Ave, Toronto

Falling Through the Cracks: Greg’s Story is a short film on Greg Price’s journey through the healthcare system. The film gives a glimpse of who Greg was and focuses on the events of his healthcare journey that ended in his unexpected and tragic death. In spite of the sadness of Greg’s Story, the message of the film is intended to inspire positive change and improvement in the healthcare system. We believe the film will resonate with the audience and create a platform for further dialogue. We hope people will feel empowered and challenge the status quo of the current healthcare system so we all end up with better care and outcomes.

Please join us in this combined Arts and Humanities in Medicine and MD Program Portfolio Faculty Development event!

We are excited to offer you exclusive screening to the short film “Falling through the Cracks” followed by a panel discussion. The panel discussion will be featuring a member from Greg Price’s family along with several physicians to facilitate the discussion and learning points from the film. Third year clinical clerks will be receiving a similar session the following day as part of their core clerkship day which includes the Portfolio session dedicated to Patient Safety and references this film.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
1. Enable learners to recognize the challenges that patients face when navigating the complex nature of the health care system
2. Allow students to identify opportunities to make necessary system-level changes to make care safer
3. Reflect on personal experiences with patient safety incidents as a resident or staff
4. Reflect on personal experiences with quality of care issues as a resident or staff
5. Anticipate how students may react to this film and share strategies to help them reflect on similar patient safety and QI challenges

All are welcome! Here is the link to the film trailer:
