SAFE OR Courses
The SAFE Operating Room (OR) Course is a multidisciplinary course for surgeons, nurses and anaesthetists. It is a residential three-day intensive multidisciplinary training course. SAFE OR is a two-day short course, delivered in an interactive style with a few key lectures and rotating breakout sessions that include discussions, demonstrations and low fidelity simulation. It includes sessions on leadership, teamwork, communications and decision-making. These key messages are highlighted and reinforced throughout. Other key topics include surgical site infection reduction, anaesthesia and surgical emergencies and the principles of enhanced recovery.
