Highlights from this Session:

1. “Our great struggle in medicine these days is not just with ignorance and uncertainty, It's also with complexity: how much you have to make sure you have in your head and think about. There are a thousand ways things can go wrong.” - Atul Gawande.

2. Differences between an ineffective and effective checklists.

3. Do not value what you measure; measure what you value.

Further Resources:


1. Atul Gawande's ted talk on Get a Coach.

2. Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande (His two other books, Better and most recently, Being Mortal, are great reads as well)
