Abstract

Using checklists in the field of medicine became very popular in
the last years and was intensively mediated, even if the opinions are
still controversial.
The paper presents a relatively inedited (and challenging) approach
regarding the use of checklists in the field of childcare and discuss
some possibilities to implement specific checklists in the residential
care institutions for children and youngsters. The author spotlights
the main results of a pilot study that took place between 2011 and
2016 and labels relevant aspects concerning the implementation of
some specially designed checklists in the daily activity in childcare
institutions. The importance and especially the possible main impacts
of using this method currently in youth care centers are also
analyzed.
