A assisted at or performed part of the operation only (the surgery comments box should be used to record which part(s) of the operation the trainee has performed)
PS trainee has complete the entire operation under direct supervision. Direct Supervision means that the supervisor has been present in the operating theatre, scrubbed or unscrubbed
P trainee has performed the entire operation under indirect
supervision. Indirect supervision means that the supervisor has not been in the operating theatre. They may be outside the doors, in the coffee room, in their office etc but not in the operating theatre. For trainees who do not hold a CCT there should be a supervisor present on the hospital site who can be contacted and go to the operating theatre if a problem arises that is outside the trainees' competence to deal with.
