Safe Surgery Saves Lives: A Campaign of the World Health Organization

WHO Surgical Safety ChecklistIn 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) worked with a group of experts to create a surgical safety checklist. The objective of the checklist is to reduce the complications and mortality associated with adverse events in surgery. The checklist is also a good tool to improve communication among team members. The list is adjustable to every situation and each hospital can adapt it. In order to help understand why operating teams should use the checklist and how to use it, the WHO produced three videos: in the first two videos, we can see how to follow the steps whether the case is complex or not. The third video shows a case where a surgical team did not use the checklist.
