Safer Surgical Teamwork (SST)
SST previously known as Safer Australian Surgical Teamwork (SAST) is a combined workshop for surgeons, anaesthetists and scrub practitioners. The workshop focuses on non-technical skills which can enhance performance and teamwork in the operating theatre thus improving patient safety.
Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS)
The NOTSS workshop focuses on the non- technical skills which underpin safer operative surgery. It explores a behaviour rating system developed by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh which can help you develop the knowledge and skills to improve your performance in the operating theatre in relation to situational awareness, communication, decision making and leadership/teamwork.
