Table 2 Possible learning goals for Hand-it-on. Typically, one or two are selected for any given conduct

From: “Hand-it-on”: an innovative simulation on the relation of non-technical skills to healthcare

After taking part in Hand-it-on participants should be able to:

• Describe their actions and observations during Hand-it-on using a previously introduced NTS framework, for example ANTS [16]. This could be investigated ad hoc by using the instructor’s impression or systematically via transcripts of the debriefing.

• Describe possibilities in their clinical practice, where they might use NTS elements to improve patient safety and quality of care. This could be analyzed via interviews.

• Replicate Hand-it-on in settings in which they teach. This could be analyzed by observing how participants run Hand-it-on.
