  • October 1, 2015

In Research and Publication
Medical organizations have increased interest in identifying and improving behaviors that threaten team performance and patient safety. This CRICO-funded study helped evaluate surgeon perceptions and to make future recommendations.


Research Conclusion: The CRICO-supported study found that 360-degree evaluations can provide a practical, systematic, and subjectively accurate assessment of surgeon performance without undue reviewer burden. The process was found to result in beneficial behavior change, according to surgeons and their coworkers.
