Ankara University Hospital-a part of SBI Türkiye

In 2020, Ankara University joined the Safe Brain Initiative. Subsequently, it improved perioperative surgical care and expanded surgical teams' self-assessment and awareness about patient safety, satisfaction, and outcome.

More than 2000 patients have benefited from a safer and less complication-ridden, thus more comfortable postoperative period. This was achieved thanks to the high professionalism of Ankara's assistant doctors, assisting technical personnel, anaesthesia technicians, and nurses.

In addition to improving patient safety and outcomes, a more standardized and precise perioperative period reduces PACU time and increases patient-centred care.

SBI also resulted in perioperative medical practitioners gaining valuable experiences and knowledge of improved perioperative outcomes related to the brain.

It is important to note that SBI is not only a health initiative focused on protecting patients' brain health but also an educational program for applicants.

By using the same language and providing information, knowledge, and experience, SBI contributes to the outcomes of patients and the education of medical teams worldwide.
