Lectures and seminars HI Conversations - "Live tissue training” and the concept of fidelity in trauma surgery simulation
Welcome to participate in the Health Informatics Conversations together with Cara Swain, surgical registrar employed by the Royal Navy and currently a full-time Doctoral student at LIME.
Cara Swain, surgical registrar employed by the Royal Navy and currently a full-time Doctoral student at LIME. Specialist interests in trauma and emergency general surgery, with a secondary interest in medical education, particularly the use of simulation.
"Live tissue training” and the concept of fidelity in trauma surgery simulation
“Live tissue training” involves using live anaesthetised animals as human patient simulators to practice trauma surgery. This presentation will describe how and why simulation is used, when learning to manage surgical trauma patients, and explore the concept of fidelity and its importance in simulation design. This will be contextualised using results from a systematic review and thematic analysis of the literature exploring the use, and educational value, of live tissue training.
What are the Health Informatics Conversations?
HI Conversations - a seminar series about Health Informatics
The conversations are about research-oriented health informatics topics, i.e. – presenting a published article, your research area, a relevant theory or a method etc.
The Health Informatics Conversations will be recurring the last Thursday (except for June and December) every month at 12.00 via Zoom and last for one hour. This hour includes 20 minutes of presentation and leaves the rest of the time for discussions, all in English.
If you are a PhD-student – this is a credit-bearing activity, as long as the topic is relevant for your research.
