As far as I can tell from the excerpts that I have read, Atul Gawande makes a decent case for using checklists in medicine. ( google for the checklist manifesto ) Also see http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/full/NEJMsa0810119 and http://www.who.int/patientsafety/safesurgery/ss_checklist/en/ There are also some videos on youtube. I plan to use the clinical pathways as "checklists" and to this end have created a keyboard shortcut that will bring up a map. So, say I am typing adalimumab cl: This will bring up the maps editor and scan for any with the word adaliumab present and display the first map present that does. Because it is keyboard driven, it should be faster than using a mouse to navigate the maps.
