North West School of Surgery - Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS)


North West School of Surgery

Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS)

 

The RCSEd Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS) Course is a one-day course aimed at surgeons across all specialties. The course examines the non-technical skills which underpin good operative performance.

 

The courses will be either online or face-to-face course at the Chorley Hospital Education Centre 3. There will be a variety of teaching methods and will be employed including small group work and simulated scenarios.

 

As part of the school of surgery’s commitment to develop and embed human factors / non-technical skills training in the education programmes and the workplace, all ST3s are required to complete a non-technical skills for surgeons (NOTSS) course.

 

To develop faculty for these courses as well as enhance the HFs / non-technical skills teaching being delivered across all the programmes we are running two courses for Consultants (and SAS doctors) only in addition to offering trainee course places to ST8 trainees (and ST7 in Urology and OMFS).

 

It would be anticipated (that once attended these subsidised courses) to join the NOTSS teaching faculty in HEE NW (as invited by the course director) and be a link/champion for NOTSS training in your speciality training programme.
