Thank you for posting this article.

This is a great article and will enable 'introduction of checklists' to go in my folder of examples of "Hitting the target, missing the point".

The Target described here is 'introduction of surgical checklist', but the Point (the thing we really care about) is improved surgical outcomes.

Although this article does not seek to address the issue of how to implement to get improvement it does reference some interesting articles that do. Maybe one of the timeless messages here is if the solution to a long-standing complex problem appears to be too simple, it probably is.
