ONLINE PEER REVIEW OFFERS IMPROVEMENT IN SURGICALTECHNIQUES
The nexrrimeyourrargetaudienceis recalcitrant to process improvement, perhaps you can try anonymous peer feedback.
The technique seems to have pierced through the hierarchy of surgeons reluctant to take suggestions from younger surgeons, according to UCLA researchers. The study examined using social networking to facilitate peer review of surgical procedure videos.
The urology and gynecology residents used a robotic surgery' simulator to sew and tie two tubes together, performing the same procedure three times. Residents who videotaped their efforts and posted the video in a group forum for review improved their technique in subsequent attempts. Completion times were shorter, and scores were higher for technical efficiency, greater accuracy and economy of motion.
According to Dr.
The research, "Video-Based Peer Feedback through Social Networking for Robotic Surgery Simulation," appears online in Û\e Armais of Surgety.
