In order for the Checklist to work well it has to be used “right”.

The Team is looking to you for leadership.
You are setting the tone for the rest of the operation.
Others will follow your patterns of communication.
This is an opportunity to make your plan clear, answer questions, demonstrate openness and professionalism.
“It’s time to do the CHECKLIST”
I don’t want to do it – I never did this before – it makes me feel weird
I am already safe - I don’t need to do it
Maybe the surgeon in the next room needs it
It is our responsibility to work to improve the safety and outcomes of our patients.
We are not powerless to make change.
We are part of a surgical team and often in the position of leading that team – that is a privilege and an opportunity to make a difference.
This isn’t just about the surgeon and what you need . Everyone is in the room for the patient and all of the people around you need your help, encouragement and leadership. Surgery is a team effort and the most effective and safe surgeons recognize that.
The Checklist can help you do that.
