Optimising Surgical Safety Checklist implementation: Key lessons for practitioners and partners

to compare how the Surgical Checklist was used in operating theatres in two British hospitals and two sub-Saharan African hospitals. The study involved observing doctors and nurses in operating theatres and interviewing some of them, as well as managers. 

This report looks at how hospitals – in high or low-income countries – can best approach implementation of safe surgery checklists in order to maximise the benefit to patients. It lists seven key lessons about how checklists can be introduced, implemented and used optimally and gives practical examples of how these lessons might work in a real situation.
