The Checklist Manifesto Summary

27 pages24 minutes


Over nine chapters Gawande makes a detailed and persuasive argument for the use of checklists, not only in surgery, but also in other fields where their use is not as widespread as in aviation and construction which have made checklists mandatory.

As a consequence of his interest in implementing checklists during surgery the World Health Organization put Gawande in charge of a team, which investigated a trial of surgical checklists over eight countries. This trial showed to most people their great worth to the extent that over two thousand hospitals globally, including 10% of US hospitals have introduced them.
