So it sounds to me like we have 21st-century problems with 20th-century approaches. So what do we do? Well, I believe that clinicians given the right skills and opportunity can be at the heart of solving many of these very complex issues.

— Dr Jono Hoogebrug, Family Medicine Physician and Senior Harkness Fellow.

In this thought-provoking introduction to the Clinical Changemakers podcast, host Dr Jono introduces the pressing challenges faced by modern healthcare systems. From workforce constraints and ageing populations to growing administrative burdens and the impact of COVID-19 and climate change, 21st-century problems demand innovative solutions beyond the 20th-century approaches.

Dr Jono argues that clinicians, equipped with the right skills and opportunities, can be at the forefront of tackling these complex issues. He emphasizes the unique position of trust and influence that clinicians hold within their teams, institutions, and society, and encourages them to use their voice to drive change.

The podcast aims to explore essential skills, lessons, roles, and experiences that can empower clinicians to address these challenges effectively. With a focus on leadership and innovation, Dr Jono believes that great leadership can channel collective effort to overcome immense obstacles while thinking differently allows for breaking free from the status quo and moving towards new solutions.
