Surgical Care in Global Health Settings

Surgical Care in Global Health Settings

Host: Mary Leuchars, MD

Guest: Alex Haynes, MD

Little is known currently about the amount and availability of surgical care worldwide. How does this challenge development of surgical care protocols globally and, by extension, the formation of international public health policies? Dr. Alex Haynes, surgical research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health and Massachusetts General Hospital, and lead author of a recent study evaluating the WHO surgical safety checklist, joins host Dr. Mary Leuchars to address these clinical and political challenges.
