Abstract

What are 'non-technical' skills and why would they be relevant to theatre practitioners? This is a new area of research for healthcare based on a well developed approach from the world of aviation. Non-technical skills are the cognitive and social skills that complement technical skills to achieve safe and efficient practice in safety-critical occupations. These skills include communication, leadership, teamwork, stress management and situation awareness.
