An embedded checklist in the Anesthesia Information Management System improves pre-anaesthetic induction setup: a randomised controlled trial in a simulation setting.

Wetmore D, Goldberg A, Gandhi N, et al. BMJ quality & safety. 2016;25:739-46.

When implemented successfully, checklists can improve patient safety. In this randomized controlled trial, researchers provided anesthesiology residents in the intervention arm with a checklist to assist with evaluating preanesthetic induction. Blinded observers determined that residents in the intervention arm performed better in preanesthetic setup compared to the control group.
