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

Venue: Wolfson

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

Venue: Tausend

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

Venue: Wadsworth

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.
