Event description

Description

Delivering safe surgical outcomes for patients through improved multidisciplinary working in the operating theatre has been talked about often but seldom delivered in practice.



This new multidisciplinary workshop provides surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and operating department practitioners with the opportunity to acquire, refresh and develop their interactive and interpersonal skills with other members of the surgical team.

Working in small groups, participants will complete a series of exercises, critical clinical scenarios and role-plays designed to improve their skills in communication, teamwork, handovers, issue identification and problem-solving. Participants will also learn how to enhance their working environment through quality improvement.

This workshop is suitable for health professionals at all career grades who work in surgical teams and will be accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
