Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book explains how training in arthroscopic skills is best carried out in order to keep up to date with advances in arthroscopy, meet the ever-increasing demand for high-quality care, and respond to changes in available training time. State of the art developments regarding tools, performance monitoring, and learning strategies are presented, and practical guidelines provided for direct implementation in daily clinical practice. The coverage of simulation-based training ranges from the use of wet labs and box trainers through to sophisticated virtual reality simulators. Subsequent sections on objective performance tracking of training outside and in the operating room cover a variety of key aspects, including performance measures, evidence-based thresholds, preclinical training strategies, and the role of global rating scales, for objective monitoring. Readers will find the book invaluable in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of arthroscopic training.
