BACKGROUND Although the general literature on stress and performance is extensive, little is known about specific effects of stress in surgical practice. This qualitative study explored key surgical stressors, their impact on performance, and coping strategies used by surgeons. METHODS Individual in-depth semistructured interviews with surgeons were(More)
The base of all training in interventional radiology relies on the development of the core skills in manipulating the instruments. Computer simulators are emerging to help in this task with virtual reality simulators and haptic devices. This paper extends our previous interventional radiology training framework with two new virtual instruments: a stent and(More)
The availability of VR laparoscopic simulation for surgical training has increased significantly. Nevertheless, few studies have explored such simulators' requirements and the degree of fidelity necessary to provide effective educational tools. The authors aim to identify which didactic resources available in VR simulation technologies are most important(More)
BACKGROUND The literature on simulated or standardized patient (SP) methodology is expanding. However, at the level of the program, there are several gaps in the literature. We seek to fill this gap through documenting experiences from four programs in Australia, Canada, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. We focused on challenges in SP methodology,(More)
Background. " Fidelity "-an intrinsic property of simulation is crucial to simulation design and educational effectiveness. Yet the term fidelity is inconsistently used, which makes it difficult to draw inferences from current literature and translate research to practice. Aim. In this article, we attempt to bring some clarity to the term simulation(More)
BACKGROUND An evaluation of an effective and engaging intervention for educating general practice (GP) receptionists about integrated care and the importance of their role within the whole system was conducted. METHODS Workshops took place in North West London, one of England's 14 'Integrated Care Pioneers.' Three training days featuring Sequential(More)
This paper proposes the idea of education as engagement rather than transmission, by which I mean an open-minded exchange of perspectives resulting in 'reciprocal illumination' for everyone who takes part. Terminology is important here. Mention the term 'public engagement' and people think of experts pontificating about their pet subject – at science fairs,(More)
