The virtual event will take place from April 14th to 16th, 2021 giving simulation professionals an opportunity to share their knowledge and learn about new training solutions. The main focus is the future of medical simulation and the challenges we face during COVID-19.
It’s a great pleasure for us to have a lecture during a conference program: The Future of the Challenges in Pediatric and General Laparoscopic Surgery Training with Simulation
Using Simulation Models for training Pediatric Surgery at Low Resource Institutions and Remote Training in the time of COVID-19.
We set up a program consisting of two parts. The first will be represented by Ray O’Sullivan, a professor and gynecologist experienced in laparoscopy education. The second will be held by Dariusz Patkowski, a professor and pediatric surgeon experienced in many of the most difficult laparoscopic surgeries in the world.
Firstly, Dr. Ray O’Sullivan will demonstrate how he has continued to teach laparoscopy skills remotely throughout the pandemic by using our portable Advance system to connect to his students and to remotely assess their progress. His work shows the possibilities for remote simulation teaching going beyond the pandemic.
This will be followed by Dr. Dariusz Patkowski, a renowned pediatric surgeon, who will demonstrate thoracoscopic repair of esophageal atresia on a silicone module that has been created specifically for this purpose by Laparo. This incredibly difficult procedure is very rare, meaning that surgeons are often underprepared. With well-made, replaceable modules inside laparoscopic simulators, this can change and provide surgeons with the practice needed.
We encourage you to join the Sesam Conference and keep up to date with the latest simulation technology.
