general surgeon at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, staff writer for The New Yorker,
and an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health, explains how more training and advanced technologies don’t seem to prevent experts from making costly mistakes, but a simple checklist can. His new book, The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right
looks at how innovative checklists are being adopted in hospitals around the world and how the checklist revolution can expand into fields beyond medicine.
