Mobile Skills Lab to visit Cardiff

Mobile skills lab

 

On Wednesday 17 July 2013, Cardiff Medicentre will host a state-of-the-art training day for orthopaedic surgeons based in the South Wales area.

 

Parked up in the Medicentre grounds (a stone’s throw from UHW) will be a bus. Inside this bus are two fully equipped arthroscopic dry and wet workstations which enable surgeons and trainees to practise simulated  surgery and fine-tune their skills in particularly tricky or uncommon surgery.

 

Constraints upon trainees time mean that training must be efficient and suitable. Mobilising training in this way allows whole theatre teams to learn to use equipment in a risk-free environment. Simulation trainng  is hugely popular in countries all over the world. It also furthers the General Medical Council’s objective of ensuring that doctors in training learn and practise in simulated clinical settings before treating real-life patients. Delivering this to surgeons in this way on  the UHW site ensures that here in Wales we have professionals who are at the very top of their game.

 

Simulation trainng in Wales is spearheaded by WIMAT (Welsh Institute for Minimal Access Therapy), which part of Cardiff University.  This award winning trainng centre based in the Cardiff Medicentre has teamed up with Arthrex Ltd to stage this event.

 

Arthrex, the owner of this unique facility, are a global medical device company and a leaders in new product development and medical education in orthopaedics. The company has its head office in Florida and is bringing the training to Cardiff on this occasion in partnership with WIMAT.

 

Neil Warren, Senior Lecturer of WIMAT says: “we are delighted to welcome this facility to the UHW site. The bus travels across Europe and to have this facility visit Cardiff is a great benefit for the orthopaedic trainees in this area”.
