Anaesthetic paediatric incidents

CSC Logo Transparent


This one-day course teaches participants to become better crisis managers in the anaesthetic environment. Patient safety is central in providing high quality healthcare and much is documented about the efforts made globally to reduce medical errors and injuries. Adverse events often involve failures in communication, leadership, team performance and situational awareness as well as clinical knowledge and experience. This course aims to focus upon the management of taxing clinical scenarios whilst building upon the candidate's awareness of improved teamwork and communication skills. The use of simulated scenarios and audio-visual playback should be expected to facilitate a full and meaningful debrief throughout this course.
