This is a half-day course for trainees from all surgical specialities. 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 breakouts. By the end of the course, participants will be able to understand the theories and research relating to adverse events in surgery, and the importance of 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 operative theatre.
