About the Author

John J. Nance, JD has been a dynamic and deeply dedicated member of the medical community for nearly two decades. Speaker, consultant and best selling author, John brings a rich diversity of professional training and background to the quest of patient safety and medical practice improvement.

John’s unique ability to reach every member of the healthcare community comes from his unprecedented background mix of law, safety, aviation and even broadcasting. He was a founding member of the National Patient Safety Foundation at the AMA and was a member of the Executive Committee who served on the board for 9 years, a decorated Air Force and commercial pilot, an internationally-known author of 18 major books, and a trusted and internationally recognized medical/patient safety and aviation safety broadcast analyst for ABC World News and Good Morning America.

John Nance was one of the pioneers of the pivotal safety revolution in professional communication, teamwork, and leadership known in aviation as crew resource management (CRM), and is widely credited with helping to spark not only the universal acceptance of CRM principles in aviation, but the earliest infusion of culture-changing lessons derived from aviation into medical practice.

His book about safety in human systems entitled BLIND TRUST was pivotal in illuminating serious public issues in aviation safety for the American public, and WHY HOSPITALS SHOULD FLY follows in that tradition as a major wakeup call.

Physicians in particular resonate deeply with his powerful messages about leadership and the human propensity for mistakes even among the most tenured professionals, and his extensive experience working with hospitals and clinics nationwide has been dedicated to the urgency of improving healthcare from patient safety to practice satisfaction.
