Leadership: briefing and debriefing in the operating room (PDF 285 Kb)

Published- Jul 2017. Author - T Donnelly.

Briefings play a major role in promoting discussion. They encourage everyone to ask questions, ensure clarity of expectations of surgery and clearly define the roles of each team member. Essential equipment can be identified and team members introduced to each other. There is a suggestion that teamwork and a willingness to speak up regarding concerns is enhanced if each team member knows other members’ names (Haynes et al 2009). This paper intends to discuss the importance of leadership in the implementation of briefing and debriefing in the OR.
