SAFE Operating Room Courses
The SAFE Operating Room (OR) Course is a multidisciplinary course that focuses on non-technical skills and aimed at training surgical teams including surgeons, nurses, anaesthetists and technicians.
SAFE OR can be delivered as a one to three-day short course, delivered in an interactive style with a few key lectures and rotating breakout sessions that include discussions, demonstrations and low fidelity simulation.
The course includes sessions on leadership, teamwork, communications and decision-making. These key messages are highlighted and reinforced throughout. Other key topics include surgical site infection reduction, anaesthesia and surgical emergencies and the principles of enhanced recovery.
