Abstract:Motivation
Our study is designed to identify human factors that are a threat to the safety of children with heart disease.

Research approach
After an initial observation period, we will apply a major safety intervention. We will then re-measure the occurrence and types of human factors in the operating room, and the incidence of adverse events, near misses and hospital death, to evaluate if there was a significant post-intervention reduction.

Findings/design
We focus on challenges encountered during the training of the observers. Research Limitations
Because of the complexity of the OR, observations are necessarily subjective.

Originality/Value
This work is original because of the systematic evaluation of a safety intevention and the training protocol for the observers.

Take Away Message
Systematic and periodic assessment of observers is required when teamwork is observed in complex, dynamic settings.
