To assess longitudinal changes in the six surgical indicators proposed by the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery, in 2016, a second data collection on these indicators pertaining to surgery for each country worldwide was performed. Under the supervision of Mr. Andy Leather and Dr. Justine Davies at King’s College London, and in collaboration with Dr. John Meara at Harvard University, and the WHO GIEESC (Global Initiative on Emergency and Essential Surgical Care), between July 2016 and January 2017, selected members of the International Student Surgical Network (InciSioN) took a mixed methods approach to collect this data, which have been updated in the World Bank database on July, 1st 2017.
In collaboration with the Lifebox Foundation and Ariadne Labs
2019 marked the ten-year anniversary of the Surgical Safety Checklist, increasingly implemented in operating rooms around the world. Through this international, collaborative research project, InciSioN, Lifebox, and Ariadne Labs evaluate the dissemination, exposure, and use of the Checklist among students and residents in countries around the world with an emphasis on low- and middle-income countries.
In collaboration with the Rutgers University Program in Global Surgery
In 2015, the Lancet Commission in Global Surgery introduced six indicators to evaluate and monitor health systems with a focus on surgical care. In this study, InciSioN, together with its United States' National Working Group (Global Surgery Student Alliance, GSSA), collaborates with Rutgers University to evaluate the knowledge and perceptions of the indicators among students and trainees around the world, and assess their interest in pursuing global surgery work.
