Innovation & Technology Track - 1:30 pm-4:00 pm
Surgical simulation is an increasingly prevalent aspect of surgical training. Emerging technologies such as novel haptic devices, sensor systems, and interactive virtual environments could play a major role in driving the future of technology-mediated surgical training. In this 2-hour workshop, participants from clinical fields, as well as engineering and computer science will collaborate in small groups on brainstorming innovative uses or creation of technology within key topic areas. The groups will be responsible for developing a year-long collaborative research plan with the goal of leading to two scholarly outputs (e.g., clinical and engineering journal papers) and a potential grant application on the chosen topic. Example topic areas include: high fidelity haptics, improved needle-based simulations, technology for team dynamics and team training, interactive simulated patients, etc. To help facilitate the creation of new technology, engineering faculty from UT Dallas will present potential avenues either through the UT Design program or individual research labs.
Physicians, Advanced Practice Nurses, Psychologists, Nurses, Residents, Students and Other Healthcare Professionals across multiple specialties who are involved and/or interested in simulation training, simulation-related research and quality improvement.
After attending this symposium, participants will be able to:
- Implement and/or design products to enhance simulation education working collaboratively in groups.
There will be signs pointing to the designated session.
