Geneva, Switzerland: WHO World Alliance for Patient Safety; June 25, 2008.
This initiative provides a surgical safety checklist and related educational and training materials to encourage international adoption of a core set of safety standards. Implementation of this World Health Organization's checklist has resulted in dramatic reductions in surgical mortality and complications across diverse international hospitals. Surgical checklists have now become one of the clearest success stories in the patient safety movement, although some have described challenges to effective implementation. Dr. Atul Gawande discussed the history of checklists as a quality and safety tool in his book, The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right.
