How to maximize simulation training? New study: Tactile feedback
A team of University of Iowa researchers studied 55 residents from four medical centers in order to determine whether simulator-based wire navigation training can transfer to higher-level tasks. Their work, “Do Skills Acquired from Training with a Wire Navigation Simulator Transfer to a Mock Operating Room Environment?” appears in the May edition of Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research. Co-author Donald D. Anderson, Ph.D., director of the Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory at the University of Iowa explained the genesis of this study to OTW, “Orthopedic residents can struggle with fluoroscopic wire navigation skills when they first enter the operating room.
