Dr. Marc Sapoval, head of the Vascular and Oncological Interventional Radiology Department at the Hôpital Européen Georges-Pompidou in Paris, discusses prostatic artery embolization (PAE), and the training IRs need in order to master this promising procedure.
In this interview Dr. Shivank Bhatia, Associate Professor of Interventional Radiology and Urology at the University of Miami Hospital, speaks about Prostatic Artery Embolization, the relatively new minimally invasive procedure to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia. Dr. Bhatia highlights what this new procedure means for interventional radiologists as well as the training aids available to help drastically reduce the learning curve.
Over the past few years, the landscape of stroke care has changed dramatically due to technological advances and increased possibilities to train on endovascular procedures.
I spoke to Dr. L. Nelson Hopkins, also affectionately known as The Godfather of Endovascular Neurosurgery, about the future of stroke care, challenges and barriers, and why simulation will play an important part.
David Patterson is an instructor & trainer at Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) Training Center. The mission of the organization is to provide health professionals top quality ACLS training as well as Basic Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. In one of his articles, he writes about recognizing and responding to stroke.
Mentice has received a grant from the Swedish government agency for innovation, Vinnova, to develop a simulation-based training system including validated metrics capable of assessing proficiency in treatment of acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
Value-Based Healthcare is snowballing its way into the gateways of many healthcare systems across the world. We believe that simulation used for refining and verifying interventional skills should play a significant part in shaping the future for Value-Based Healthcare. In this blog article, I will discuss Value-Based Healthcare from a Mentice perspective; continuous skills development and assessment using high fidelity simulation solutions.
