A novel post surgery debriefing process, in a general surgery department in a 550 bed public hospital in Israel, was developed and practiced during 24 months. The process relates to pre-operative pareparation, to surgical equipment problems, to functional isuues related to other OR partners (Anesthesiologists, nurses etc.) and to personal conduct of the surgeon during the procedure itself. It is aimed to define the problem, why did it occur and to suggest a lesson for the future. The results of this process prove to have affected safety issues as well as efficiency with regard to multiple OR functions and most important as a learning & teaching methodology. We shall describe the 6 stages of the process, the comliance charachteristics and its actual results.
