Brief Description:

This Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh delivered one day Masterclass is aimed at consultant surgeons from all specialties with an interest in training. The course involves short lectures, video scenarios, interactive discussion and the use of an audience feedback system. It will cover the influence of human factors in surgery and the importance of non-technical skills in underpinning good surgical performance. Delegates will learn how these non-technical skills can be observed, rated and used to provide feedback.

Aims & Objectives:

Technical skills are, of themselves, inadequate to ensure optimal outcome following surgery. This course aims to address the non-technical skills that are the essential cognitive and interpersonal aspects of operative surgery underpinning technical actions and optimising and enhancing the performance of individual surgeons and through them, the surgical team.

Learning Outcomes:

On completion of this course, participants should be able to:
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the relevance of non-technical skills and error management to surgical performance.
  • Observe and discuss examples of good and poor behaviours in the operating theatre.
  • Use taxonomy of non-technical skills.
  • Rate behaviours using the NOTSS rating scale.
  • Provide structured feedback to trainees/other consultant surgeons based on observations.
  • Discuss how non-technical failures can lead to poor clinical outcomes.

Consultant/Professor, Associate Specialist, Post CCT Registrar/Fellow, Speciality Registrar 8, Speciality Registrar 7
