Non-technical skills: enhancing safety in operating theatres (and drilling rigs)

This article discusses the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig disaster and highlights failures, particularly to deficiencies in non-technical skills, asking what the relevance is to perioperative practice and identifies a number of similarities between an operating theatre team and a drilling rig crew. It highlights the SPLINTS (Scrub Practitioners’ List of Intraoperative Non-Technical Skills) system, which provides a structured framework and common terminology for discussing the non-technical skills, which all good scrub practitioners possess and use on a day-to-day basis.
