from By Jim Bills, Vanderbilt Center for Experiential Learning and Assessment
Checklists are obviously a huge part of medical simulation events. Though checklists first gained popularity during World War II for use in aviation to reduce accidents, they are now ubiquitous across many spectra, but particularly in our world of medicine, medical simulation and events with SPs. The purpose of a checklist is simple: to help us reduce mistakes due to the limits of human memory and attention.
