Surgical Outcome

Proficiency, leadership, joy leads to improved patient outcomes
Surgical errors and adverse events are often committed by individuals, and yet they are mostly the product of faulty systems, inadequate organizational structure and poor human factors considerations. The session will deal with optimal technical and non-technical skills training, coaching and improved human factors to address the complexity of factors leading to surgical harm. Human factors research provides a framework for analyzing and reducing patient risk and harm by considering where system designs could take better account of human capabilities and fallibilities.
