PETER BRINDLEY

Peter Brindley MD, FRCPC, FRCP (Lond), FRCP (Edin), Full-time Critical Care Doc from the University of Alberta Hospital. To the surprise of many (himself included) he is a Professor of Critical Care Medicine, Anaesthesiology, and Medical Ethics. He has authored 90 peer-reviewed manuscripts, 25 book chapters, 50 lesser manuscripts, and has two textbooks pending. He has given over 300 invited presentations in 10 countries, and over 30 plenaries. He was a founding member of the Canadian Resuscitation Institute; and was perviously Medical-Lead for Simulation, Residency Program Director, and Education Lead at the UofA. He has advised the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, and the Royal Colleges of Canada and of Edinburgh. There are many better speakers, but none happier to be here. He welcomes questions; comments and especially disagreements: after all he doesn’t wish to be wrong a moment longer than absolutely necessary.
