To provide an opportunity for inter-professional teams to focus on their interactions when challenging situations arise


This one day course within the safe simulation environment provides theatre staff with an opportunity to participate in and reflect upon the management of various challenges and crises we encounter in the Operating Suite.

Being an effective team member, or leader, and implementing good teamwork is hard work and we need to practice it. This course provides an opportunity for teams who work together to train together.
