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.
Each of these categories is broken down into elements or
behavioural markers that can be used to identify a superior or
substandard performance. A faculty of four RACS Fellows will lead
you through a series of interactive exercises to help you better
understand how these markers can be used to reflect on your own
performance and that of the surgeons you work with.
