VETbytes launches a series of interactive checklists
Checklists are defined as lists of actions arranged systematically that allow the user to consistently perform each action, record the completion, and minimise errors.
They are used extensively in healthcare and in addition to the obvious clinical benefits they have also been credited with improving team communication and supporting a culture of patient safety.
Where you see this “check box” symbol alongside the title of a condition, there is now an associated checklist available.
The checklists have been created in 2 formats to cater to all levels of expertise.
Keep It Simple summary (KISS)
For those experienced clinicians who just need a reminder of what is and isn’t recommended, the “KISS” checklist is ideal. Users have the option to expand individual recommendations to gain access to drug doses and to understand more about the specific indications and risks for each treatment.
For clinicians with less experience or those unfamiliar with a particular condition, a more detailed checklist is available by clicking on the “expand all” button at the top right-hand side of the page.
We will be sharing some resources about how to effectively implement checklists into practice with our subscribers to ensure you get the most out of this exciting feature.
We are really interested in hearing your feedback about our checklists so please let us know if you have any ideas for additions or suggestions for changes that you would like to share
