Conservators from all specialty groups are invited to gather and share some of their less happy moments, including treatment errors, mishaps and accidents, with the idea of helping our colleagues not to repeat them. Attendees are welcome to step up and present their tales themselves, or submit them to be read anonymously. Video projection available for illustrations. Extra points for suggesting safeguards and solutions! Cash bar. Come, relax & unwind, share, and learn”.
