      How excellent anaesthetists perform in the operating theatre: a qualitative study on non-technical skills.

      Excellent anaesthetists were identified by anaesthesia nurses as being:

      1. Organised & focused: structured, responsible, and focused approach to work tasks.
      2. Good communicators: clear and informative, briefing of team about the plan before induction.
      3. Respectful of complexity: humble to the complexity of anaesthesia, admitting own fallibility.
      4. Patient-centred: personal contact with the patient before induction.
      5. Good situational awareness: fluent in practical work without losing overview.
      6. Calm and clear in critical situations, being able to change to a strong leading style.

      Quality Anesthesia: Medicine Measures, Patients Decide.

      Quality has been defined by six domains: effective, equitable, timely, efficient, safe, and patient centered. Quality of anesthesia care can be improved through measurement, either through local measures in quality improvement or through national measures in value-based purchasing programs. Death directly related to anesthesia care has been reduced, but must be measured beyond simple mortality. ⋯ Anesthesiologists can also impact public health by being engaged in improving cognitive recovery after surgery and addressing the opiate crisis. Going forward, we must focus on what patients want and deserve: improved patient-oriented outcomes and satisfaction with our care. By listening to our patients and being engaged in the entire perioperative process, we can make the greatest impact on perioperative care.

      Critical Role of the Surgeon-Anesthesiologist Relationship for Patient Safety.

      The surgeon-anesthesiologist relationship is probably the most critical in determining overall team performance.

      Anaesthetists' non-technical skills.

      This review presents the background to the development of the anaesthetists' non-technical skills (ANTS) taxonomy and behaviour rating tool, which is the first non-technical skills framework specifically designed for anaesthetists. We share the experience of the anaesthetists who designed ANTS in relation to applying it in a department of anaesthesia, using it in a simulation centre, and the process of introducing it to the profession on a national basis. We also consider how ANTS is being applied in relation to training and research in other countries and finally, we discuss emerging issues in relation to the introduction of a non-technical skills approach in anaesthesia.

      Anaesthetists' Non-Technical Skills (ANTS): evaluation of a behavioural marker system.

      Non-technical skills are critical for good anaesthetic practice but are not addressed explicitly in normal training. Realization of the need to train and assess these skills is growing, but these activities must be based on properly developed skills frameworks and validated measurement tools. A prototype behavioural marker system was developed using human factors research techniques. The aim of this study was to conduct an experimental evaluation to establish its basic psychometric properties and usability. ⋯ The findings of the evaluation indicated that the ANTS system has a satisfactory level of validity, reliability and usability in an experimental setting, provided users receive adequate training. It is now ready to be tested in real training environments, so that full guidelines can be developed for its integration into the anaesthetic curriculum.

      Anaesthesia non-technical skills: Can anaesthetists be trained to reliably use this behavioural marker system in 1 day?

      Performance assessment is becoming increasingly necessary in the medical workplace. Hospitals and patients expect safety, and under-performance by a doctor can compromise standards. By describing and quantifying performance, positive behaviour can be encouraged and unsafe behaviour remedied. Anaesthesia Non-Technical Skills (ANTS) is a behavioural marker system that can be used to assess non-technical skills in the workplace. ⋯ Anaesthetists could not be trained to reliably use ANTS as a summative assessment tool using our 1 day programme. There was an inadequate correlation of scores between participants and experts. Two major problems contributed to the lack of agreement. Observed behaviours were often misclassified into the incorrect element and safety beliefs varied among anaesthetists. Other reasons for the failure to achieve success and potential future direction are discussed.
