Human Factors Initial Training:
Human factors training is not a one stop shop but an ongoing process. On completion of the initial training, analogous to the aviation industry, a day of recurrent refresher training is available to provide an update every 2-3 years.
The Recurrent training day is suitable for all theatre healthcare workers including Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Trainees, ODPs, Scrub Nurses, Recovery Nurses, Theatre HCAs and Theatre Managers who have completed Initial HF Training. On completion of the initial training the recurrent training day provides a rolling programme of Human Factors training and CRM skills to ensure knowledge it retained and updated.
Recurrent Training Course Objectives include:
Revision of the modules covered in the initial training
Current hot topics and challenges in today's NHS
Application and development of key non-technical skills (NTS)
