Title: Team Behaviours and Non-Technical Skills in a Paediatric Surgical Facility
Description: For those of us who work in operating theatres, our careers have been founded on our acquisition and execution of technical skills. Patients lives may depend on these skills but more likely on our ability to work as effective team members. Despite what experiences one may have had in sport, few of us have learned our true and interdependent roles in the theater. Non technical skills; leadership, situational awareness, problem solving and teamwork are what keeps our patients safe.
