Simulation-based training of practical skills for endovascular procedures has been available for many years—predominantly offered as a teaching method for proctor led and individual training. However, procedural proficiency has at large only been assessed by the number of cases completed and time spent on the simulator.
The introduction of detailed metrics which measure each maneuver, mistake and procedural performance is starting to create changes in current practice. Performance metrics are defining learning objectives at a granular level with high accuracy and measuring how well they are reached.
With our benchmarking support features you can define learning objectives and metrics for your courses—taking a step into the world of proficiency-based training and assessment. By setting benchmarks you can focus your learning on different procedural aspects, at different stages of the learning curve—helping create more effective training programs, with progression taking place only when previous learning objectives are met.
As part of our drive for improving the effectiveness of endovascular training, we have updated several software modules with benchmarking support — enabling you to create proficiency-based training and assessment programs.
Proctors and course administrators can now create their own training curriculum in which they can set customized benchmarks to train and assess procedural skills.
To focus our efforts on coming updates, we would like your input on some key aspects of the new features.
The survey will only take 2 minutes to complete but could mean that your preferred modules can be updated months earlier!

The ability to remotely introduce complications in real-time while trainees are performing a procedure on the Mentice simulator tremendously enhances the learning experience and brings simulation even closer to reality.
