Improving Patient Safety in Critical Care (IPSCC)

The course begins with an introduction to non-technical skills (NTS). This outlines key non-technical skills/human factors involved in caring for patients, such as effective communication, anticipation and planning, and taking a leadership role.

We then cover 5 to 6 scenarios during the day. We debrief after each scenario, focusing on the key NTS points.

To be realistic, the scenarios use high-fidelity simulation.
