CIRSE IR Patient Safety Checklist
In line with the society’s aim to improve patient safety in IR, CIRSE has created the first-ever safety checklist for the discipline, based on the WHO model. The checklist, which was created by an expert working group led by Michael Lee, was successfully tested in four hospitals across Europe earlier this year.
The single-page document comprises of pre-procedural (“Sign-in”) and post-procedural (“Sign-out”) components and can easily be modified to suits the requirements of individual hospitals. The document is available on the CIRSE website in both PDF and MS Word formats and will be published in CVIR soon along with a corresponding white paper.
All CIRSE members are encouraged to incorporate the checklist into their clinical practice to help improve the safety dynamics of their hospital.
The checklist is currently being translated into various languages which will be made available soon.
Please note that the checklist and a corresponding white paper will be published in the journal CVIR soon .
