ABSTRACT
The author discusses the importance of team introduction in operating rooms (ORs). She states that communication failures have been identified as the main cause of surgery going wrong. According to her, members of the surgical team not only need technical skills but also no-technical skills in relation to monitoring performance and a positive disposition towards others in the team, therefore, she emphasizes on team introduction that can contribute to building a climate of safety in surgery.
