Edinburgh - RCSEd

This is a Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh course.

Course description:

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 Style:

Participants are sent reading material prior to attending the course. The course gives participants practical experience of observing and rating non-technical behaviours. The format is centered on small group work and the use of simulated scenarios from the operating theatre and other industries.

Learning outcomes:

On completion of this course, participants should be able to: 1. Demonstrate an understanding of the relevance of non-technical skills and error management to surgical performance. 2. Observe and discuss examples of good and poor behaviours in the operating theatre. 3. Use a taxonomy of non-technical skills. 4. Rate behaviours using the NOTSS rating scale. 5. Provide structured feedback to trainees/other consultant surgeons based on observations. 6. Discuss how non-technical failures can lead to poor clinical outcomes.

Targeted Audience:

Consultants and Senior Trainees in all surgical specialisms.
