Change has been an integral part of healthcare throughout history: from the barbersurgeons of medieval Europe to our current-day sterile operating theatres; from polio epidemics to polio eradication strategies; from simple x-rays to sensitive magnetic resonance imaging; from traditional birth attendants to specialised obstetric teams; and from paternalistic models of practice to shared decision making. Change continues to be a feature of healthcare, expanding in its impact and escalating in its pace.
