The future of Simulation in robotic surgery training and credentialing, Update on the US Fundamentals in Robotic Surgery


Seance of (SÉANCE FRS (Fondamental Robotic Surgery) à l’Académie Nationale de Chirurgie - Enseignement de la chirurgie robotique)


AbstractThe Fundamentals of Robotic Surgery (FRS) is a comprehensive simulation-based curriculum developed by 14 surgical specialty societies, the Department of Defense and the Veterans Hospitals through a rigorous process of consensus conferences and Delphi reviews. It consists of a comprehensive course that includes the full cognitive (didactic) skills, psychomotor skills and team training & communication skills for the pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative components that would apply to any generic robotic procedure - from the moment the patient enters the operating room until the patient leaves the operating room. The details of conducting the extensive methodology for "full life-cycle curriculum development" includes processes such as criteria for subject matter experts who develop the course, task deconstruction and analysis, error identification and definition, a new robotic-specific device for training and assessment, team-training scenario development, setting standards for proficiency benchmarks, assessment tool development for non-technical skills, summative test question evaluation and validation study design. The curriculum is open source public domain and available as a web-based online course. Validation Trials and high stakes testing are under development.Intervenant : Christophe VAESSEN (Paris)
