Monthly Training

Annual simulated sessions will be co-ordinated nationally and run regionally as part of existing monthly teaching sessions. The aim is to run 3 sessions annually using a combination of table top decision-making exercises, simulated patient consultations or simulated multi-professional MDTs.

These sessions will utilise a combination of face-to-face and on-line meetings. The sessions will allow discussions around complex issues such as consent and capacity or bed flow/management issues. These sessions will mirror those of the HST bootcamp and allow repetition and deliberate practice of skills over phase 2 training.

Each session is aligned to the curricular Capabilities in Leadership (CiPs); and include some of the generic professional capabilities, such as:

  • Professional values & behaviours
  • Health promotion and illness prevention
  • Safeguarding vulnerable groups.

These sessions will enable discussion around the Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS) namely situation awareness, decision making, teamwork & communication and leadership; revisiting and practicing elements established within the Core Surgical Training programme.

The full training programme and booking information is available on the HST Training Zone on Turas. Booking face to face sessions closes 3 days before the event and morning and afternoon sessions are counted separately.
