All workshops will run once at 14:00-15:30 then repeat at 15:30-17:00.
Training Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons in International Contexts
Chairs: Simon Paterson Brown, Douglas S Smink, Robert Riviello, Georges Natakiyiruta and Steven Yule
Understand and assess the key non-technical skills required for safe surgery through informal presentations, discussions and video scenario assessments.
Lapco Train the Trainer: Helping Experts Become Expert Teachers in the OR
Venue: Playfair Building
Chairs: Brian Dunkin, Mark Coleman and Andrew Miller
Conducting a Needs Assessment to Identify Surgical Procedures for Simulation-Based Training
Venue: Deacon Suite
Chairs: Lars Konge and Leizl Joy Nayahangan
Recognise the importance of performing a needs assessment prior to developing simulation-based training programs and identify barriers and potential solutions frequently encountered during needs assessment.
Mastery Learning for Surgeons
Chairs: Michael Moneypenny et al
Mastery learning is a technique for skills acquisition based on deliberate practice with feedback. It requires agreement on a checklist of standardised set of steps needed to complete a given procedure. This is followed by practice on a task trainer with a minimum passing mark based on the checklist. Following successful completion of the simulated assessment practitioners are considered ready for supervised practice on real patients.
Reflections on Feedback
Venue: Reception Room
Chairs: Dan Beral and Nicholas Mitchell
Feedback should be developmental, part of the training journey and an ongoing discussion, which is less rigid than the Pendleton or Sandwich models. This interactive workshop aims to outline the challenges of the feedback process and explore strategies based on fresh perspectives.
Squeezing the Juice – Maximising Training Opportunities in Surgery
Venue: Charter Suite
Chairs: Lisa Hadfield-Law and Humphrey Scott
Explore ways of maximising opportunities in surgical practice to get the most from every teaching and learning opportunity.
Pushing the Boundaries of Surgical Education: Inspiring Surgical Educators through Performance Simulation of Music and Surgery
Venue: Lower Ground of Prince Philip Building
Chairs: Kirsten Dalrymple, Roger Kneebone, Terry Clark and Tamzin Cuming
Experience simulation in an educational context outside medical education and gain an appreciation of how simulation may facilitate expertise development. This is an opportunity to think creatively about how simulation can be reframed and reconfigured to generate new learning and development strategies.
Learning Design for Surgical Courses in the 21st Century: An Interactive Workshop
Chairs: Elise Omfalos (Educator – Royal College of Surgeons of England) and Alastair Simpson (Colorectal and Emergency Surgical Consultant – Nottingham)
Interactive workshop on how to overcome challenges of learning design. It follows an innovative learning design methodology developed by the University College London (UCL) and Prof Diana Laurillard which we tailored to the surgical context. During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to develop and design a course. Using a game format, teams will work together to create a visual storyboard outlining the type and sequence of learning activities (both online and offline) required to meet the needs of the learners and ensure that learning outcomes are met.
