This course provides a unique opportunity for the peri-operative nurses and allied health professionals working in robotics to learn strategies for successful robotic surgery across multiple specialties from the pre-, intra-, and post-operative perspectives. Guests may choose to attend with or without their surgeon counterparts. The course will consist of 10 live moderated surgical demonstrations, didactic lectures, breakout sessions and hands-on workshops that cover areas such as optimizing efficiency, team management, assist strategies, communication, organization, positioning/safety concerns, troubleshooting, and more! There will an alternative Focused Simulation Lab portion as opposed to watching live surgery. Sign-up for the lab will be available 2 weeks prior to the event to registered guests only. Limited space available.
This course is part of the larger Second Annual NYU Multi-Specialty Robotic Surgery course, which includes Robotic Urologic, General, Colorectal, Thoracic and Gynecologic surgery tracks. These tracks focus on advanced robotic procedures among 5 different specialties. With 5 systems and over 7,500 cases performed, we will share our team approach to running a multi-specialty program. We encourage and recommend you to bring your surgeon counterparts, nurses, PAs, RNFAs, hospital administration, CRNAs, and surgical technologists. Our flexible structure allows guests to choose to attend any of the live procedures you want and you may attend the surgeon track program courses for any specialty you like.
At the conclusion of this activity, clinicians should be able to:
- Describe factors of positioning for safety
- Demonstrate safe and efficient OR setup for cost-effective robotic cases of moderate to high volume
- Effectively communicate and work together with the entire surgical team
- Troubleshoot robotic technical complications as well as how to function effectively during unanticipated events
- Describe the critical components of each person’s role during key procedural steps
Statement of Need
This course provides a unique opportunity for the peri-operative nurses and allied health professionals working in robotics to learn strategies for successful robotic surgery across multiple specialties from the pre-intra-and post-operative perspective. There is a documented need to improve communication across all disciples for safe and effective surgery. Robotics teams need efficient and effective skills to optimize performance and troubleshooting in a systematic format.
The NYU Post-Graduate Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
