Virtual and Physical Sim: The future of measuring physician proficiency?

By Mentice on May 19, 2021 8:29:14 AM

Kashif Ikram, MSc. MA. MBA had the opportunity to sit down and discuss simulation. As Head of Corindus Vascular Robotics EMEA at Siemens Healthcare GmbH, Kashif has led robotics in the surgical field for the past seven years. In this blog, he shares his thoughts on training and education as physicians transition into robotic-assisted vascular interventions.

How Novel Transcatheter Therapies are Transforming Echocardiography

By Mentice on May 12, 2021 9:48:25 AM

Today, echocardiography is crucial to patient screening and guidance for novel and complex interventional procedures, and this increases the demand for highly skilled operators. However, training opportunities remain limited. There certainly is still no standard certification process for echocardiography, and education continues to be based off an outdated see one, do one, teach one model. How can interventional teams move toward new training techniques that will save both time and costs, as well as improve patient outcomes in echocardiography and echo-guided interventions?

Why More Cardiologists use Simulation for Clinically Complex Scenarios

By Mentice on Mar 25, 2021 10:00:00 AM

Learning on real patients always comes with risk, and limited insight. Cardiologists are constantly seeking to innovate the ways in which they train for clinically complex scenarios within a safe environment. The more complex a procedure, the more simulation has been able to support interventional cardiologists decision making process and ultimately supporting an improved patient experience.

How Cardiologists Use Simulation to Reduce Learning on Real Patients

By Mentice on Mar 24, 2021 10:00:00 AM

In a world where pilots are required to train and certify for their own skills, simulation should become a more solidified standard for healthcare professionals as well. Pilots have standard processes in place for avoiding real-life crash landings, yet interventional cardiologists still face a need to better define their own training methods for improved patient outcomes.

The Future of Simulation in Interventional Cardiology Education

By Mentice on Mar 23, 2021 10:00:00 AM

Healthcare professionals on a global scale recognize that medical simulation plays a key role in improving cardiovascular training and education. We recently met with Prof Dr. Jens Flensted Lassen of Odense University Hospital and had a critical discussion exploring the future of interventional cardiology. Explore the conversation:

How are Interventional Cardiologists using simulation to improve their training workflow?

Training in Interventional Cardiology has come a long way from the see one, do one, teach one model as more and more cardiologists integrate high-fidelity simulators into their workflows. Simulation has undoubtedly helped IC’s reduce real patient learning and significantly improve patient outcomes over the years. In fact, the EAPCI has recently updated their Core Curriculum (2020), recognizing that simulators are increasingly effective educational tools, and that they should be incorporated into training and early adoption.
