CriTical Incidents Course: (TACTICs)

CSC Logo Transparent

Who is the course suitable for?

Managing critical incidents not only requires knowledge and technical skills, but also effective non-technical skills which underpin an effective team performance and expedite timely delivery of safe, high quality care.

This course challenges participants in 'common' and uncommon critical incidents that the trainee anaesthetist will, at some point, likely be involved in managing. It utilises the Anaesthetic Non-Technical Skills (ANTS) framework, developed at the University of Aberdeen in debrief, enabling trainees of all levels to understand these important concepts and develop their skills.
