Although several sources support the adoption of checklists in clinical settings, there has been resistance from clinicians. From Pronovost: "Until a junior nurse can correct a senior physician who forgot to use the checklist, until that conversation goes well, we will continue to harm patients."
Your discussion should address the following:
- How might you convince a physician to use checklists in his/her practice in order to reduce error?
- Using specific examples (they can come from fields like aviation and construction as well as medicine), evaluate the pros and cons of using checklists the increase safety in clinical settings.
