When asked 'What single unheralded change has made the most difference in your field in your lifetime?' Professor Redmond had the following to say:

"The recent classification and standards of foreign medical teams by the World Health Organization, as well as its global registry, training, and mentoring. This brings quality assurance and accountability to an area that's seen some doctors respond to disasters despite being uninvited by host governments, unauthorised to practise in that country, and ill equipped, while carrying out procedures for which they're not licensed in their home country and even without proper patient consent."
