"Dental therapists started in the 19 fifties, and it started as in New Zealand and then moved to Australia, the concept of it in over 50 other developed countries have dental therapists and have been using it for years as an access to Orel Healthcare. Um, and just to give you an example. But like Minnesota, they dental therapists are located in urban and rural areas proportionate to the population base, like like 58, or 60% of the population population base in Minnesota lives in around the Twin Cities area. 60% of the dental therapist worked there, you know, and then 40% work rule, But it's just been an amazing tool. And you think of it this way. It's also a ladder. I'm a dental hygienist. I don't really want to go back to college for X number of years to become a dentist. But in like a 36 months program, I could become a gentle therapist. I can increase my scope increase my pay scale. You know, so it's a ladder up for people that have the interest to do that. Also But the window where the free market approach to access to healthcare Well, a couple of questions first. What made the dental association change its mind? I know that they were not real sold on this in the last session. Second, is If you have 100% of your colleagues signing on what's next in the Assembly? Do you expect pretty rapid approval of this legislation? Passage of this legislation? That is 100% of speak of ask questions. So speak of us actually held the bill in Assembly organization, which is a committee that he chairs meeting. He hasn't put it into a committee to allow us to have a hearing. So representative plumbers, my colleagues. That's our lead on it in the assembly and representative and I are gonna be getting together in the next week or so and have that conversation. And then approach speaker boss So right now it is 100% in the hands of speaker box. The will see And you do you expect that it will will move the session? What are you hearing? I guess from The speaker. What are you hearing from the assembly? Right now. Not a lot. People are very engrossed in the budget. But I think you know, seeing it past the way it did. Unanimous in the Um, Senate and this is bipartisan. I mean, Governor Evers has repeatedly put this legislation in his budget and had said from Day one, he would be more than happy to sign this piece of legislation. That's win win. Why anyone would not support this. We have no groups opposing it. We have 80 plus groups in favor of it. The dentists are no longer you know, opposing it. They've done a great job of stepping up and helping us. By going through the capital and thinking all this is something that you know, but You're free to move it on. They're neutral on it, just from the standpoint that they do have a split association. Um, but being neutral is great. Being opposed is bad. And so now, I guess the question is speak of us. Are you going to help you know all these Children that are in low income and families that are low income by helping them gain access to oral health care? That's the question. Don't have the answers. I sure hope so Sweet. We shall see. We shall see again. I think you bring up a good point. All eyes were fixed on the budget. And this is not just the budget. It's extra special budget time because you have all of that. Federal money of 3 to $4.2 billion that for reasons that aren't entirely clear to the taxpayer out there. Governor Tony Evers has just about unilateral control over that's pretty much like putting a drunken sailor in front of the household budget. I just have a minute left and I want to quickly Um, change focus on that. Um, we have a lot of money that could have been helping people. And most recently, we learned that the Department of Public Instruction in the Department of Health Services basically mess this up. They could have been sending out money, but they couldn't find the kids. In the low income categories to get them the food assistance from the federal government just your thoughts quickly on that, and this is just the most recent turn of failures from this administration. Well, if you would watch the agency briefings that we had, um and I'm just gonna I'm gonna switch a little bit. But this bring my point across we have the Department of Natural Resource is in and basically they did not go out and do careful inspections for permits. They did not go out into inspections for covered to be changed. They did not do their job for a year. Let me repeat that they did not do their job for a year. So all these businesses some tone ships actually hired independent engineers so that they could get covered replaced because Deanna did not leave the basement. Yet the warden's could be out. Mm hmm. So basically what the Department of Natural Resource is What Preston Cola secretary told me is they are not essential. We don't really need them. And the private sector could take over for a lot of things, but that's the idea of this administration. The building is still locked down that The agencies are very few of the agencies are in working. I mean, God bless like physical Bureau and Legislative Council and reference here. I mean, what would we do without them there and working every day? But the rest of them will still farm is empty. Department of Natural Resource is empty. What is the percentage of people at DHS that are working very few? And they won't be back until July. 5th we here now? So, Yeah, ridiculous. Your point is well taken Mary and that is what do you expect when you don't have employees working, and you're certainly not holding them accountable. And I think that's what the joint Finance committee and the Legislature's gonna have to do. Moving forward, which we had more time. We're all out. But until then, until we talk again, take care in God's country, Okay? You bet. Thanks, Matt. You bet. Take care. State Senator Mary fills Kowski Republican from Irma, northern Wisconsin. In his God's country Up there, we'll be back. There's a candidate new candidate running for attorney general will introduce you to him next of the Vicki McKenna show.

What is it about health care that inspires you to stay focused on the field shirt. So i guess if i start off on a personal note i would say that medicine and health care are very much embedded in my in my dna.

Which is everything happening. Outside of data and clinical trials. And could that tie into improving economics research within that company. And i guess my most recent inflate of experiences are really pushing towards. How do you to move the needle in pharma research and development. And how do you better understand. Where data science and technology intersect with that changing space. So the the totality of everything. If you think about how interconnected the system is having those experiences. I have kind of shaped You know my my thinking now and really to where we are today. So that's been fun intents and kind of an inspirational experience to date for me.

Yeah i guess my takeaway message would be kind of authority kinda said and has been the articulated. Just the i suppose from like a professional capacity feel free to ask about religion culture background with the young person like everyone's different so obviously if the young person really doesn't embrace religion coacher is nothing to do with their life they identify with it. Leave it and you know ask. Is religion an important view in non also co. We went touching again. But you know yeah actually explore it be transparent about it and dying. Don't feel like you have to as a professional. I the ins and outs with the coach. When their religion learn about it with the young person almost like a collaborative collaborative learning thing. I think the young peasant appreciate that transparency to professionals. I think just be open and honest and ask questions and really. Yeah at doug hold back supplies in terms of when am exploring coach with. The president wants to bring their culture into the therapy because of like to be stigma affair an- and fiat people. That just say you know is something you worry about what we'll family think. What will people think Similar to ided. Oh yeah even when. I be with like my diagnosis. I say i need to go to therapy.

You know appreciate the not making a big deal out of things just because the Looking at whether or not deny like religious whether or not a so if they have different difficulties that was good. I'm shoulder lost. I don't remember they didn't make a big deal about it. Just because of what. I look like riches. We'll stay that treating you differently. Which is a nice thing knoxville. Thanks shauna the. I wonder if anyone else has any comments to add. Should you know it. Might be the ashley Made to Not treat you any differently but it might be you know should we. Should we do you not think we should be asking questions about cultural belief. Liza am definitely like relate to sean point to some extent about Maybe needs not being so different. I've mentioned before how identify more westernized nigeria saw. I'm granted very white area and all that kind of stuff. But then i'm go to say. I think i appreciated the effort. That was made by safeguarding. A kind of team. I say cutting officer at school and also my therapist is well. An effort made to try and educate themselves surprise In like i think. I mentioned previous. 'cause my therapist actually ost Their religion is a big thing for me about coach at made the effort to kind of ask a common prevention previous But as may be kind of ask about my family tree but in terms of like case. What's the name you give to like. You will non on your mom's side and you know and i didn't. I think that s it just isn't it was it was appreciated. My mom appreciated that too. 'cause i think at the end of the day as much as i may identify more westernized i am so south asian and as i've grown up more and actually come to university which is far more diverse than my kind of school in my hometown. I started to embrace my coach From fully transparent as a kid because nobody else is like me but meeting people now like when i look back on the i actually think the i made to educate themselves like to got your win. She say oh what are you. Okay extended family tree in terms of your culture and for pakistani background. I actually appreciate that end. And i think one thing i've come across in some The people is that a young person that i'm actually said something along the lines of and the best thing that therapist did was sit down initial assessment. And say okay. I'm why annual black. What is it that you want me tonight. And what is it the about your coacher in about your background. Going forward through therapy. Won't that stuff you want me to address things you don't say i actually think that transparency is really valuable. I think she does no harm in being really upfront and And saying you know maybe As as professional. Maybe i don't know much about your cultural background. So tell me about it. You know. Make because i think that if it from a young person's perspective is appreciated that if they're not educated they're trying to be by think with kind of recent events people definitely becoming more educated on the matter over like culture and background that such an amazing example. Actually i could see everyone noting that head. Some really agreeing with that actually. Let's let's just talk about it right from the start. Let's address the differences. The hey aaron. And just in the same way as i would wait on a therapist with any young person. I may a fait if they have different a different background today or at a different Religion today than i would welcome landing about us. Oh helen what do you think. That approach Yeah unlike the suggestion at the end of through where we took what he kinda suggested. Actually let's be transparent within sessions. They actually yes. There is a difference. There is no harm in being transparent and being clear and being of yes actually there is. That can be a difference. What can we do To learn about that so i found that quite empowering listening to that because as a therapist i will take that would just kind of went touch a little bit on from what you said in the happy guys at bean kind of stereotype because of your ethnic tastes guy move from that question lays whilst like that was really appreciated. As i mentioned the effort made by my therapy safeguarding team. Whatever to learn more about kind of my background and stuff and this is why like this was not ministers in any way. My therapist got team. They went all racist or anything like that. But this is this gonna give his.

"Help to identify folks who are experiencing high levels of trauma or distressed it's critically important but we also have to think about what are we doing when we are first interacting with law enforcement? How are we on boarding them into this culture is their opportunity to change. To encourage wellness seeking, and then make sure that when it is provided and if it is provided safe to do so so I think that there's an entire restructuring the needs to take place when you talk about that and you see these stats in the staff that I play earn just read about sixty percent higher than other police departments. What's your take away a? Justin when dad came out the Department of Justice report, I had so many officers. So many people who have been working in peer support and supporting other people say that's not even correct. That's a low ball thought it was higher. Yeah. They thought it was higher I don't know if it took into account retired officers, etc. So suicide is the most tragic outcome of hopelessness and I think there's a tremendous amount of hopelessness in my career as a mental health advocate is that we are not my here. We know we are going to see an increase of suicide generally because of everything that is going on in our world. And the police are the safety net right now or they they seem to be owning all of disruption and we are putting a lot on their shoulders. So they are even more at risk for feeling doubt for behaving and impulsive utilizing substances is a male adaptive coping strategy. All of these things because their trauma is so compounded and there isn't enough space to mitigate that risk Santa Joe the University of Chicago Crime Lab has been collaborating with the city to develop one of these new pilot programs the data driven officer support system. Tell me about that program. This program is unique in that it really focuses on the human interaction. It is a program that is based on specific data models that the University of Chicago folks have been putting together and working really hard. So it's it's good because it does identify a person these four hopefully next adverse action might occur by using all this historic data. The key component of the officers support system is once somebody's been identified. So let's say I'm identified as somebody who is at high risk of having another adverse reaction adverse action, right? The key piece of this is to get the supervisors involved and the existing support systems at the CPT has offer but the sad thing is there's so many really good support systems already available through pd that's the good news. The bad news is most people don't know they exist or they don't know how to use them or there is a stigma component or the fear that if they do access them, they may lose their jobs. Alexa, there is a stigma I mean police officers are almost trained to be tough to to be outside of the of of mental health issues. They're the ones that are that are coming in and they're the peacemakers. So how do you get a pass stigma when when it's so ingrained in the culture of law enforcement for so long that mental health is an issue for them. Yeah I mean bright. Totally. Stigma surrounding mental illnesses mental health issues is. Existing, every type of culture it's changing, but it doesn't seem to be changing with the same pace with enforcement it. Now, I will say this, they're just build onto what Sandy Joe said that there are resources within the department..

"Health Service provides healthcare to two point six million million native Americans across the United States but a Wall Street Journal investigation has found the agency hired dozens of doctors. Who should have been flagged for their history of medical medical mistakes and regulatory sanctions and that had dire consequences for IHS Patients Wall Street Journal reporter Chris? Weaver was part of the investigation team. mm-hmm and joins me. Now Chris. You found the Indian Health Service gave many doctors with troubled histories a second chance. Tell us what you found about their records and and how this impacted patient care when we began our investigation by looking at one hundred sixty three malpractice lawsuits alleging harm to patients at Indian Health Service hospitals and in each of those lawsuits. We track the doctors who were involved and look back into their histories. What we found boundary that one in four of them before ever treating? IHS patients had red flags in their past including things like multiple malpractice lawsuits in private practice or sanctions from licensing boards or in a small handful of cases even criminal convictions. That should have raised red flags with the Indian Health Service before managers. There cleared them to treat patients on the government's watch and yet they were hired anyway and this. This intern did impact patients and really negative ways. Ace Yeah they were hired any way. And we've found cases where doctors with you know up to about a dozen malpractice lawsuits against them in just a few years were allowed to treat patients at government hospitals native American patients and some of the most disadvantaged communities in the country and we found examples where doctors who had run afoul of US authorities for prescribing things. Slake oxycodone and Oxycontin were allowed to continue treating patients despite the questions that that kind of conduct should have raised about their judgment. We found instances where in one case a surgeon who had had a medical Michael License revoked after a patient died was allowed to continue treating patients at a government hospital and within a matter of Said had four major complications leading managers. which is there to reverse their decision and basically kick them out of the facility? Chris this investigation comes on top of reporting you did with the PBS frontline online series into the Indian Health Service The the I investigation into a doctor who has now been convicted of sexually abusing young boys under his care for years taken together with this recent investigation at certainly points to extensive problems within the system here in the course of our investigation of that physician a guy named Stanley Patrick Weber. WHO's now been convicted in two different courts of molesting at least six boys under his care? We saw a pattern of behavior at the Indian health. Service service where managers would tolerate both clinical and conduct problems with providers both already in their employ and candidates for jobs coming in and end. We recognize that that was one part of the puzzle that had facilitated the sexual predators career there for so long despite concerns earns about him that had tracked him from facility to facility over the years Chris at the same time your reporting has helped lead to changes at IHS. How is the Indian the in health service responding to this current investigation? What changes has it made already? What changes is it working on making well after our investigation showed that the agency had ignored warning signs about? This pediatrician Dr Webber. who was you know accused for for years and years of sexually abusing patients? They did make a series series of pretty significant changes. They immediately changed their policies with regard to reporting allegations of sexual misconduct. They've already committed into further overhaul in their policies in general for screening physicians who apply for jobs at the agency to for instance clarified. Hi that they should not be hiring doctors who have restricted licenses meeting lake. Medical boards have have limited their ability to practice. And they're also you know examining a kind of a broader set of reforms that they could adopt. There's some outside agencies and groups helping with that for instance a White House Task Force worse is currently investigating the agency and is expected in the next month or so to release a number of suggestions for improvement there. And then of course you know they've taken more day-to-day steps to improve awareness of their existing policy is among the workforce for. You know what to do if you suspect that a colleague has sexually abused abused patient. Or or anyone else your reporting has also pointed to challenges that are specific to the IHS a huge challenge being attracting and retaining qualified qualified staff to locations. That can be very remote. Where benefits are often not the most competitive? How do you overcome challenges like that? You spoke about working with other groups to help solve these problems. What other support is IHS asking for? Well I mean the issues that they face are you know in part of their own making but they also have enormous structural challenges. I think we have documented in the investigation published this week that there were cases where managers made decisions that on their faces were were dubious but the truth is that they in many aac cases have a very limited pool of candidates who WanNa work at extremely remote facilities that are often very poor communities in some cases up to a hundred miles from the nearest Walmart. Those facts of geography are not good candidates for reform. And there's other structural real issues like the government pays last for instance than many physicians particularly specialists are able to make in private practice. And that's a challenge that it's it's hard to see a way around for the agency that they are seeking to try to address some of these issues though and one of the things that they're doing at some facilities is relying on relationships with academic like Harvard. Some Harvard affiliated hospitals have been sending Physicians for instance to troubled facility in South Dakota called Rosebud. The Rosebud Indian Health Service Hospital for some time and they've actually had some good success improving improving the range of services that that hospital offers and the leaders of the agency has said they're hoping to build on those relationships. Congress has increased funding to the agency moderately in the last year. or so. But you know the amount of money that is appropriated is still far far below what the US government spends for patients who are entitled to Medicaid or Medicare air and by some counts even for prisoners. Who are cared for by the Bureau of Prisons? So there's a big money deficit to and that you know only amplifies is the problems that are baked into the particular geographies in communities that it is the IHS mission to serve. That's Wall Street Journal reporter. Chris Weaver Chris.

"Western Canada our virtual designs cuisine as he's an example where we have getting people from all over north we're trying to put a spotlight on the fact that we haven't used human centered design in healthcare but we're early days a lot of healthcare systems do not have this on the radar there's huge so we are forerunners I think were slightly ahead of our time relates the interest in this entire field and let's not be liked people don't understand sometimes that's like you know what are you guys because we're not the typical it's GonNa be more social issues coming up and it's outside the hospital so and we really tried to be involved in issues where the community he's involved new world and design US human centered design and that's what we're doing right it's the country in going off the rails sorry what about interesting the favorite moment in a sprint I have one okay go for it so going to create a prototype this kind of Straw thing we call it the ugly baby and when I see them get feedback and get validated but also get some really good critique off and progress over perfect about movement and getting that because we are not usually my favorite moment is when you've done this broad understanding and just staring at Oh my God are we really going to do this like this is what we're doing nice more definitely both of those I feel like we're kind the moral it's good.

"Changes. It change making is all about people. It's true that we're now looking at sponsors. Searchers who who have illustrative boldness in other ways. They might love the idea of a sprint. Because it's sexy and it's the latest flavor but so we. We're far more careful about who engage with to do this kind of work and rightfully so because like you said that follow through. I heard both of you echo that that you can do you all this work you put in the sixty putting those two days and then what that was just drops. It's like okay cool. We did the thing but yeah we even had successes we've had our our second sprint. We did ascertain the privacy office with it was a cultural transformation. That happened even though the idea that came out of sprint. There were small ideas but what I did was change people's mindset and we're we're looking at this whole thing differently and now the whole transformation that happened a department is even existing and that leader is still our biggest fan. She kind of whenever we do a twitter. I and those you know we have a twitter very active twitter. If you've always posting and she constantly you know you know is on our webinars as messaging and sharing a lot of our growth design lab has been of all the people that have connected with us in in some shape or form and it's not just about sprint. They love working with us. Because we bring energy and you saw the kind of loudness we have. It's because we're optimistic. We believe that we can solve this conflict challenges if we just work differently but we have to our differently. And that's what I love about working in in this lab is that we challenge ourselves all the time what we can do this better and be going to try. And so we do education as one of the elements of because as we want to build the capacity. Not just within Al Alberto but outside. So we have sprints schools do teach people sprints and we are also running virtual design school because if you want to share what we learned and get people together. That's great scaling it out. Yeah so if anyone in your upside this podcast interested interested in learning about sprints or you know right now we have five people in the virtual design school so I think that's pretty copped but if those were interesting sprint school are I just have a chat with us and we even do some time where we call is. What's the word molly advice? Crowds Weiskopf the way Spurs. All right so we get a lot of people who are like Oh this looks like a different unit and who are they behave differently so they they call us and they say we want some advice advice and so we get this a lot so we started doing what we call wise crowds so instead of spending an hour on the phone with people we use this this tool which is a liberating structure. Which is actually? There's a website you can look it up. But why's crowds. Essentially we asked them to pitch for five minutes. The team is there listening then we ask them to turn around although it's all online usually pretend to turn around and listen to the design lab talk about about your pitch and your project and then we talk amongst each other. We're very supportive. But then people here how we look at things what think how how we view the world how we might approach challenge they have and then they turn around and they give their feedback about what they've heard so we do quick quick consult in that format so they can get a flavor for what we're all about before the engaged with us so that's like a light touch consultation Asian even though it seems quite simple but the magic actually listen. I think you've done. This is is we are we believe in something called radical candor. Being honest truthful care deeply challenge directly and people are not used to that in a lot of these are going to end and in this day and age. We are not being honest and tutoring China and instill old man in one thousand nine hundred. I'm maybe we also also inside but I really believe that. What the magically bring in not even these wise crouches but even sprints or all the consultation we do as we be authentic and honest with? This is a bad idea. This is not working. Well this is not this is not gonNA help make it more user centered so and we're not trying to be brash abrasive but we bring honesty to the conversation and we encourage the team to do the same so when we go when other ground whether there's no hierarchy and we each facilitation we do address elephants in the room because when you have honest conversations you get the good variety is coming up right so when you listen to all of this. What are you thinking like what come crosses your mind like what would you? What kind of just sitting in on all honesty like I give me also hundred sprint? So I've been writing just digging into sharing here just even like wow the application of this for so many different areas beyond his healthcare healthcare so amazing to be working within but just the application patients that to so many different realms and it's all about changing that mindset you both echoed that of that the thought and the the mindset in the way that we do work in the way that we approach challenges and issues. It's just like yeah like this is well. We need the One thing that I've noticed and I don't know if you agree Eliot bet because we're such an instant society and we want results results and actions. The sprints have elevated the conversation around design thinking we know we can't solve complex problems in two days or six weeks. We know that but it kick starts the process and that's kind of what we need it because people are kind of tired of complex theories and frameworks or methodologies. So it's it's just been so user friendly really basically and I think that's that's why it's been so successful definitely do you know what I mean like versus A new thing. A new methodology a new way of working and lofty completely. It'll take ten years to solve this. It's like people want what's happening now. So it was really the sprints at elevated our lab before that time people are like okay. That sounds interesting. But this was really what's changed our entire existence. Basically and when did the lab start gases at all of two thousand sixteen sixty three years old three years old three years. Young only the Internal Design lab in western Canada within the healthcare field. There's nothing like us and It's is credit coolest tomorrow. Elise how we have huge social media presence and virtual design scores in his an example where we have getting people from all to our north North America in UK. And and that's part of the lead love sharing out now to work but I mean I think what we're also trying to do is we're trying to put a spotlight on the fact that we haven't used human centered design in healthcare Dan. This is a tool for innovation. Pretty much the methodology that you want to use so you know just sharing widely how successful it can be but we're early days. A lot of healthcare systems. Do not have this on the radar. There's there's no doubt I don't know what other social sectors are like. I suspect it's the same. I don't think it's entirely different. So the potential is huge so we are four runners. I think were slightly ahead of our time. So but the fact that we're existing and that were permanent and and this is a real thing and that's why we're working out loud so much to try to stimulate the interest in this entire field and let's not be like ah beyond it's tough it's not like butterflies and rainbows. Yeah we we do beheads because we are kind of ugly duckling right. I call this. People don't understand sometimes it's like you know. What are you guys? Because we're not the typical kind of cookie cutter kind of people but at the same time what it's motivators you know. What because we really believe this is the way of the future? Healthcare is going to be more complex. It's going to be more social issues coming up and it's outside the hospital so so our lab really thrives on the fringes. We call them. You're like tethered lab where we don't sit in the healthcare like we sit out on just on the on the cusp of it and we really tried to be involved in issues where the community. He's involved with the healthcare system because those are all the problems right now. Hospitals are done. They're they're old one thousand nine hundred and you're trying to say okay if you want to move to this new world and used design US human centered design. And that's what we're doing. Well said Nice Work Ali which I have one more question for you guys so we talked about some of those going off the rails. Offroad ain't that was not right right. It's the country in going off the rails. Sorry what about your favorite moment in sprints. Do you have a moment. That released stands out of your favorite moment. Like what are you favorite things that can come from sprint. ooh This is interesting. The favorite moment in the spring. I have one okay go for it. So abyss happened. I just did a sprint couple of days ago and there's a lot of apprehension for people I I'm getting used to that I'm going going to create a prototype. This kind of Straw thing. We call it the ugly baby and I'M GONNA show it to someone and it's half baked idea and I'm not sure that users feedback feedback. It's really anxious and people get really nervous about but when I see them get feedback and get validated but also get some really good critique. Take you see them like they're like the what they had. This huge light Bulb Aha moment. Is that we don't have to be perfect. Can Be good enough off and progress over perfect. It's about movement and getting that because we are not usually what we do. Is We start a project and we wait until the end to get user feedback months down down the road and so. That's your favorite moment. That's my so I'll tell you. What my favorite moment is? My favorite moment is when you've done this broad understanding and and looking at the problem widely and I'll send you hone in so you find your pain point. People start voting where they want to put their efforts and people are just just staring at. Oh my God. Are we really going to do this. Like this is what we're doing. We're deciding right now. We've narrowed down and people feel of its shocked about room all of a sudden you're focusing. That's my favorite moment of the sprint. It's a nice more definitely both of those. I feel like we're kind of Yeah Denver conversation here. Thank you for inviting us. It's awesome thank you so much for being here like that was just fantastic. I'm just all energize. I'm like I got a Gal. How did this great yes just again? Thank you for taking the time for being here for sharing your insights and and I look forward to releasing this episode. I think it's GONNA be fantastic. Thank you for inviting it's good.

"More may brick and mortar. How do we help us? Mental Health and and families navigate through the education system and the health care system. So kind of big hairy. Oh boy there's a lot happening so it's not within the walls of a hospital hospital. It's generally involves the community so we pride ourselves in bringing community players and patients and users to the sprint to sell that that complex problem although you can use a sprint in any setting you can do do it in a in a problem that within a hospital department not and they have done it by bite the fun of investing so much time six weeks and those two intense days. It's best to get the bang for the buck is to go for the tough problems and go for the challenging problems and you know take the make the prototype and get that validation early on and I think you know one person when I when I I did a sprint once. And there's when you go into spring what you see. Visually is in flip charts and posted notes and sharpies and and there's color markers and there's breakout rooms and it's not a typical meeting room. There's no board there's not a boardroom table. There's no like a single. There is space on the wall. We your whole space is different because it gets people to be creative and visual thinkers and that's what we want. We want to bring out everyone to bring their best foot Ford so the other thing about sprint. It's interesting and it's called a sprint. Because of the speed so you ask us what what is the sprint. So essentially intially. It's a very fast pace decision making using both some information. Some you know some insight some passion intuition into wishing that's why frontline staff but we do things like crazy AIDS where we ask people to come up with eight ideas in eight minutes and we time box everything. So there's does it sometimes o'clock but usually it's like all right. I'll you have two minutes to complete tasks but you said this earlier. There is a lot of introspective time as well. So it's not all group work so sometimes people need to reflect and they just get the right down their ideas ideas and that's where the magic sprint diet thing because it levels the playing field for introvert next door. 'cause he make people have write everything down and when you posted in order to draw it out everyone is sharing their idea in simple fan and then we get them to present it so the public speaking skills but it's this constant individual work group work so we balance that out and we balance it washes out so I feel like there's no other meeting ever or collaboration. That happens other than misprint. In in that in that way. So allie I want to tell you I want to ask you you know facilitating these things are not easy like superintendent superintendents like you're like oh like you're on fire right at least it's only two days if you're a young guy in the room at the end of the second day my head feels like it's going to explode. Yes because you're you're so alert and in tune and getting people to keep moving so is there a time that things kind of went off the rails for you when you still -tated Ho. Yeah Oh yeah so okay. Here's a good one. So you know this was one of my my I know second sprint. And we were working with transitioning getting patients out of hospital into a long term care facility right and we had a group of ten fifteen people and very smart people and as you know as a facilitator in sprint you want them to follow the process. You want the individual and the okay. When we're going to do posted knows a writer thought down are we gonNA create them drawings to create your ideas out? Just follow the process. So what happened was either these two ladies who were having this great conversation and the facilitator me kind of Control Freak in me is i. Could you put it down on paper. That's a great idea. Could you put down on paper and I was asking and wants a sprint was done one of the sprint sprint. Participants came to me. And he's like what Allie you know what you're really pressing them that like. Why would make an and he was kind of like saying like just feedback? You shouldn't push people so much. And I kind of reflected that what really was is that there was an opportunity. We were having this great conversation and I was kind of. I mean deferring them saying put it on paper put wash just done is as they're just having the conversation. Listen to them and take notes as a facilitator so get my hands dirty instead of just telling people what to that was my really good learning experience. And that's what I've done like if people are having good ideas and start funding. It's okay. You just captured so you don't let that moment ago. Those my one of my favorite nods thanks for sharing that favorite moment of yours and sprints with us and for being vulnerable talking. Take time when things didn't quite goes plant and how you're able to adapt on the go and how it's changed type silicates prince now so thanks and merely I'd love to find. I noticed you have any of those moments of realization throughout your journey of facilitating sprints. That really stuck with you and changed. How you then approach coach facilitating this prince? Yes so I had a penny dropping moment so we did this amazing sprints we had three prototypes. One of them was an an epic win. It was like yes. Let's do this tomorrow. Epic winds are like rare like where prototypes just singing. It's humming. It's the right thing so six months of his friend. I thought this is a slam dunk. iphone the leader. I said so. Tell me about the sprint. What did you think of that sprint? He said loved sprint so so great and the VP's were in the room and yeah it was a real success often tastic. So what happened to the prototype. What happened to And he said Oh yes yes yes we wrote a white paper on it. And it's now waiting in the queue to look for funding and I think it's China Cuba one hundred and forty projects and then we realized we can go in and do these really dynamic creative days but if nothing happens Afterwards and we go back to business as usual because the bureaucracy takes over so we have now decided that we figure out which of her projects are long long term. And we stick with that team so that they don't slide back into getting approval doing the typical bureaucratic process. So that's what we've changed. Do you have any more ideas of where we kind of went off the rails alley or what we learned. I can think of one more and this was actually actually the leader grade and we were looking at also. How do we improve? Kind of home. Care Services Leader was great. She was nice she wanted to spring to be done. She was supporting us. And then there was a simple change that came out of the sprint and the whole team everyone is like this is simple. You just have to say. Make a decision and saying be going to drop this little initiative or or this little change and that's it and we can move forward. Unfortunately what happened is after the sprint. She went to the committee and wanted consensus. And sometimes well. We've kind of learned from. That is the innovative. Ideas cannot go through the consensus building process that a lot of bureaucracy and big organization innovation needs a little bit of bonus to be a courageous leader. Saying we're going to do this and it looks. It looks different. It's maybe it's hard but it's worth it because A.. We have gone through this problem solving brought and this is a right if the right thing to do. And so we've learned is that like Marnie saying is ultimately we have to find the right leader who's willing to invest time and resources but actually be innovative and take the courage to say you know what I'm going to try something different because then what's the point of investing so much sprint. Right and that's where we spent a lot of time front front because we do get a quest and trying to figure it out and purs- understand. Is this leader. The right one is willing to spin or you just want to do it because he heard about. I'm doing great work. Everybody who can't see there's quotation marks in there. That's been kind of a really good. That's enough of finding the right. People aren't immediate.

"Hi I'm Naomi Mahaffey and welcome to pause and Alberta Social Innovation. Connect podcast in this podcast. Alberton change makers pause to reflect on the work doing together to address the root causes of messy problems in their communities. We create space for reflective dialog between people who are working together to understand the systems they worked within to co create new solutions or approaches and and to learn from their successes and failures. In today's episode we chat with my lease van. Dyke and Ali Abid from the health services design lab the right by the H. S. Design Lab believes that the biggest opportunity unity's to transform healthcare lie not within strategies or processes but mindsets people working with the health services. Come to this team with complicated had problems that have no clear solution and sit squarely in the grey zone of right and wrong. The lab uses design thinking to kickstart meaningful discussions breath life into structures with human centered design and co-develop Co designed solutions to capture hurts. Elise Martin Ski sat down with my lease and Ali to reflect elect on. All things sprints what they are wet type of complex problems are sprinkle along with some stories of where things went off the rails without further ado. Here's their conversation. Hello welcome to the both of you. Welcome to the studio and thank you for being here. I have had the pleasure of being able to get to know the both of you and see you interact in the Space Drako change maker Studio of course and the energy from your office is fantastic. I hear laughter like every day that you guys are in there and sometimes the WHO music and it just it's a hub and he'd do great work in there so that's why we brought in today. That's awesome. I didn't know people perceive us that way. Although we get that comments like way too much laughing why is it so much luck here. Now combines comes quite love you I'm not saying I'm saying it was wonderful to my ears hearing the the vibe in the space and the energy so passionate people and our passion just sometime translates out of there there you go it the right word. Yeah so to get going. I love both of you to introduce yourselves kind of role you're in in and how you came to be there. All right my name is Marlene. Van Dyke and I'm the lead for the design lab Adalberto Health Services. My name is Ali a bit. I'm I'm a senior design consultant helper. Health Service design up lovely and we brought you in today. We're GONNA be talking about. All things sprints so little bit of overview of what they are and diving into what's worked what hasn't and how you've adapted and changed your process because of those successes challenges millages. Okay I'll you're gonNA explain what a sprint is. Go Sprint is basically. Everyone knows about design thinking in the space design. Thinking is a five step process and we also know that it's a long process. Most people are in this. Space are spending months on it so we thought about is a we came across. US design sprints which start from Google and Google said. We'll take the entire design process and convincing five days. And so when Marley's actor she's the the one who is a pioneer for this said five days is going to going to work in a bureaucracy and large organization like healthcare if you can get people in five days so we challenge ourselves and we made into a two day sprint and so it's basically two days we go to a creative problem solving and figuring out what is the best solution that will work for the user and we tested and we get feedback right away and we know that what we what. We're going the right direction or not. I think that's really. I think that's a good summary. You you know when people heard about human centered design. They said well that sounds kind of good. But you know. He's at the latest flavor of the day fair point and so when we stumbled upon the Google ventures sprints sprints. We thought you know what let's give it a go and the two days really hit the mark for people because you can lock yourself. Today's and focus and pull people physicians frontline staff patients in a room so we started out just testing it and actually we're still doing today. Sprints so so that's that's how it came about that's the best part is physicians and lot of healthcare professional on the front line. Love it they haven't seen such to structure and so much intense intensity and actually momentum. Well that's one of the benefits of the sprint momentum. kind of but don't you think that one of the reason it's so appealing is because healthcare and the bureaucracy stuck in over analyzing research mindsets planning so there's not a lot of action except on the front line there is so people are are welcoming this because we are known for over analyzing things for a long time and creating position in papers and strategy documents so people are craving the action behind the sprint. So and of course we have plenty of problems to work on the complexity. LEXI is huge and so design. thinking is a very good fit for the healthcare environment. And it's a surprise. It hasn't been there sooner. I mean we're customer service oriented industry and we haven't designed around the user. It's fascinating so it was just the right time and the right vehicle to get started. Yeah that's fantastic and so I'm thinking that as you get into some examples you'll talk more but like what those two days look like and kind of some of the things run is correct. Let's do it okay. Awesome so the two days it actually takes us about six weeks to get going and Organiz but the two days once we get into a room. We have seven to ten people who are really close to the problem problem. They're passionate. They actually care about this. Some people might be the naysayers. That's okay too because we want different perspectives but we walk through the a human centered design process. So we I empathize. We define we try to understand then we jumped and we actually pick Hick. Some prototypes designed prototype. And then we test on the last day with users. So it's just an expedient of process over over two today's yeah and what makes the design sprint. Kind of unique package is tied. We're making decisions and we're getting towards we're going to deliver living next day. So there's this urgency that's comes up and we had one I've done five express already and he reaction. Oh my God. Aw You know we actually have made a decision be picked picked a solution we're going to show it to users tomorrow and people can't believe there's so much mental especially like Marley's we're seeing in when they're used to long months and months or working groups and committees and bureaucracy like this is a brighter fresher. Fair good yeah being able to get that work done in triple time. Probably more than that are elevator pitches when we're talking to leaders. We say. Look look do you want to be in a working group or steering committee for two years or do you want to sprint Ambi. In six weeks have prototype that you're testing and that's music music to people's ears. Oh sign me up but not everything is printable. So we'll get into that little bit. Yeah okay well. What can we dive into that? Striving drive into some of these examples of drag sprints have gone and who you've worked with Dr so Ali helped me here. So what is for me the first thing I look at what is what is sprint. It has to be complex. There has to be a stalemates. There has to be a paradox complexly where people cannot move forward so it can't just be complicated it has to be pretty and people ready for something big. They're not just looking for a slight adjustment there like let's go. Oh yeah and it's interesting because we have done sprints and you've realized that we're you know Artemis you cannot come in Spain with a mindset minds up. This is the solution. Your problem has to have like you know what we don't know what this there's a lot of unknowns. Can you help us figure it out so it really takes and that's why we take it to heart that its complexity of. You're trying to deal with so I just WanNa go back so let's dive into what is printable so these these are the kinds of challenges. Give you a flavor of what we're working on yet. So once brand was how do we address social isolation in a rural community in Alberta. How do we help? People die in the community with L. Building more hospices.
