From: Implementation of checklists in health care; learning from high-reliability organisations

Simulation "Simulation is a good method for validation and testing the usefulness and feasibility of checklists" (C)
  "Use simulation to practise checklist utilisation" (E)
  "Checklists should be validated regularly according to a plan, in a simulator" (G)
AE analysis "Use the experience from adverse events during debrief to validate and revise checklists" (E)
Feed-back from end-users "The validating and revision group must listen to the end-users' experiences and frustrations" (D)
  "Revision could be done by feedback from the end-user. It is important that the end-users understand that their experiences are wanted and expected, and that such feed-back may have consequences." (B)
