OR Nurse. 4(6):40-47, November 2010.
How many perioperative nurses are familiar with communication tools, such as SBAR, perioperative briefings, and the WHO Checklist? How often are they used? Are they simple to implement? Are they effective? To answer these and other questions, we conducted an online survey from April 2010 to June 2010 to find out what readers are actually using in their facilities.
