Singapore General Hospital’s published results in Social Science and Medicine on our collaboration looking to go beyond assessing checklist compliance and to better understand potential sociopsychological mechanisms of the variations in SSC practices.
Since its creation more than a decade ago, the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist has made surgery safer for patients around the world. However, simply displaying the Checklist in an operating room wall does not guarantee better outcomes. How the Checklist is implemented and ingrained into clinical culture plays a key role in its success. A… Continue reading Surgical Safety Checklist Reimplementation Improves Patient Outcomes
Safe Surgery/Safe Systems team conducted a national survey of perioperative healthcare professionals to explore opinions on morbidity and mortality conferences (MMCs) and team-based morbidity and mortality conferences (TBMMs).
Safe Surgery/Safe Systems team’s latest research uses OR Black Box data to provide useful insight into surgical safety checklist performance.
Checklist updates drew on a multidisciplinary panel of experts When a medical crisis strikes in the operating room, there is not a second to waste. Surgical teams need to be prepared with the knowledge, supplies, and processes to respond quickly and efficiently to cases of cardiac arrest, hemorrhage, failed airways, and more. It has been… Continue reading Ariadne Labs Releases Digital Operating Room Crisis Checklists
The WHO Surgical Safety Checklist aims to improve surgical outcomes by outlining a series of steps taken before, during, and after a procedure to ensure surgical teams follow all safety protocols.
Safe Surgery/Safe Systems team on a new tool, Checklist Performance Observation for Improvement (CheckPOINT), to assess the effectiveness of Checklist implementation and help facilities identify areas for improvement.
