About the course
This is a one day course for Consultant surgeons and post CCT trainees from all surgical specialties. The course examines the non-technical skills which underpin good operative performance using short talks, video simulated scenarios, an audience response voting system and small group discussions. At the end of the course participants will be able to understand the theories and research relating to adverse events in surgery and the important of the non-technical skills in improving performance. They will also be able to use the NOTSS taxonomy to observe, rate and provide feedback on behaviours in the operating room.
