This is the first in our new series of Patient Safety Spotlight interviews, where we talk to different people about their role and what motivates them to make health and social care safer.
Josie tells us about the nursing error that first sparked her interest in patient safety, how a just culture helps healthcare workers and systems learn from their mistakes, and how her love of skiing has inspired her to think differently about risk in healthcare.
