Problems of Gaining Neuronavigation Skills on Surgical Education Programs: A case study in Turkey
Wednesday, November 16 11:15-11:35 AM Location: Edison E
Abstract: Neuronavigation technology is one of the important technologies that supports and guides the surgeons during the surgical procedures. Availability of this technology for the surgical education programs to gain the skills of using this technology effectively and efficiently during the surgical operations as well as availability of this technology in the operating room is critical for improving the surgical operations’ performance. In this study, the availability of this technology for the neurosurgical operations is researched through a quantitative research conducted by 220 neuro surgeons in Turkey. Based on the results of this study, suggestions for the education technology developers for creating technology enhanced education programs to increase the navigation skill levels of the candidate surgeons are developed. The results of this study aimed to improve the quality of the surgical education programs and the performance of the surgical procedures.
