Blog: Dr. Isabeau Walker on SAFE OR workshops in India

Ten years since the launch of the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist, one of the significant benefits has been improved teamwork and communication in the operating room, so what better way to embed this than through multidisciplinary teamwork training? A few years ago, Lifebox trustee Iain Wilson came up with the idea of ‘SAFE OR course,’

Lifebox in India: travelling for safer anaesthesia

A small valley shadowed by mountains on all sides, the hard terrain, political and tribal tensions, and crippling under-investment in this northeast state of India means that for nearly 3 million people, an operating room is usually three to five hours away.
