A safe operation is more than a series of clinical steps done right. Every day, our colleagues around the world share stories of extraordinary teamwork to save a life. Human dramas, cut and stitched around the world more than 359 million times a year. "The Checklist Effect" explores how longer lifespans have led to an urgent increase in the need for surgery—and provoked a deadly safety crisis. Inspired by surgeon and author Atul Gawande’s award-winning book The Checklist Manifesto, this film explores the challenges of delivering safe surgery on a global scale—and how a seemingly-simple piece of paper can mean the difference between life and death.

Directed by Lauren Anders Brown (@LABCollaborate), with the support of Lifebox Foundation (@SaferSurgery). Watch the trailer today.
