ISOBS has developed a template for a safety checklist to be used in an office where procedures are being performed, based on the work of the World Health Organization (W.H.O.). This template can be customized to meet the needs of the specific subspecialty and office setting. The checklist is available from ISOBS upon request.

ISOBS Customizing the Office Surgical Checklist
ISOBS is currently collaborating with various proceduralists and surgeons to help them customize the safety checklist to reflect their specific practices. We are developing proprietary software that can create customized checklists on demand. We welcome inquiries and collaboration to further develop this exciting new initiative.
