Resource in Surgery updated 31 Oct 2014

The Health Quality & Safety Commission is working with two district health boards (DHBs) and one private surgical hospital on a 'proof of concept' (PoC) project to test ways of improving teamwork and communication in our operating theatres.

Lakes DHB is one of the DHBs taking part. In this video, staff at Lakes DHB talk about the project and the improvements that have been made in teamwork and communication.
