5 – Engaging Surgical Team Members in This Work
In order to achieve an effective checklist implementation it is essential to talk to everybody that will be touched by the checklist. Every person needs to know what the checklist is, why it is important for them to use it, and how the checklist should be used before they use it for the first time. We recommend that checklist implementation teams have one-on-one conversations with as many people as they can. Make every effort to ensure that everybody knows about the checklist before you ask them to use the checklist in the OR. We believe that this is one of the most important things that you can do when putting something like the checklist into place. The following resources will walk you through engaging your colleagues with one-on-one conversation and repurposing meetings.
