The power of teamwork & Sim efficiency

The power of teamwork & Sim efficiency

THE POWER OF TEAMWORK & SIM EFFICIENCYBy Dr. Niranjan Sathivel Multidisciplinary team simulations have several benefits for the parties involved; learners, educators and the simulation centre staff.In these scenarios learners have the unique opportunity to tackle problems using a team approach, which in many ways mimic real life settings. Communicating, learning and understanding the perspective of each team member is a vital aspect for patient safety, which can be built into training scenar...

Finding The Best Strategy for Surgical Skills Acquisition and Retention: A Neuroscience Perspective

Finding The Best Strategy for Surgical Skills Acquisition and Retention: A Neuroscience Perspective

Simulation is a good technique to learn skills, but retention of these skills could be improved by the use of adjuvant techniques. A huge gap seems to remain in our understanding of simulation and skills retention. For example, the optimal relationship between patient outcome and the effect of simulation has not yet been clearly established in translational medicine.

Time Constraints in Surgical Skills Training

Time Constraints in Surgical Skills Training

Time constraints. We all have them and we all end up finding a way to deal with them. From my experience of having been an educator at a fully staffed medium sized simulation centre, I have first hand knowledge of the time constraints. Some sessions required elaborate set-ups which had to be started the day before. An example of such a session was the Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) skills training session for senior general surgery residents and fellows...
