StOP? II Study

Medical staff in an operating room operating

About the Trial

The StOP?-protocol is a short intraoperative briefing within the team present in the operating room, and it is initiated and led by the responsible surgeon. A first evaluation in a before-after study (Tschan et al., 2022) yielded reduced risks for patient mortality, length of stay, and reoperation. The current study tests if positive patient outcomes after surgical procedures using the StOP?-protocol can be confirmed in a cluster randomized trial.
