This episode features regular CNN medical correspondent Dr. Martin Makary (left), the Chair of Gastrointestinal Surgery and Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Surgical Outcomes Research. He speaks with the Radio Rounds hosts about the work he has done with the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO), with regard to maximizing patient safety and quality of care.
Dr. Makary has in fact authored a number of books about those topics and public health and offers some great insight into the work he does — including the importance of a simple (but potentially life-saving) “checklist” used in surgeries.
