Good non-technical skills (NTS) have been shown to prevent adverse events and errors. Improvements of NTS can be achieved by simulation based-team training.The NTS of the operating theatre team performing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is speculated to differ fra open thoracic surgery, as is the case with technical skills; however, these have not been investigated. The aim of this study is to explore which NTS the members of the VATS team perceive to be most important to patient care and safety. Exploration will be done through a deductive, qualitative analysis of semi-structured group and individual interviews with VATS team members. A theoretical perspective of Hollnagels Safety-II will be taken using the taxonomy of Oxford Non-Technical Skills (NOTECHS) system with the aim of informing patient safety.
