Training without stress is more efficient - not ground-breaking - but reinforces the "boring" hours I spent on a Laparoscopic trainer during Residency & Fellowship. Also useful to show students when they get tired of tying knots on their scrub pants..
An interesting new article - developing skills in #surgery https://t.co/NWlSpPfKzQ but why no reference to @neuromeditate et al (2009) optimising surgical skill with #neurofeedback https://t.co/1u30Mma8Fy and build on it? #HRV #Biofeeback is also effective
RT @kambiz: Learning to become a surgeon is not all about suturing and tying, but I welcome reports like these that show how cutting the st…
So what do surgical trainees need? ..... A supportive environment!!!!
Who would have thought?! A stress-free environment is beneficial when practicing microsurgical skills! Read my group's paper in Nature's Scientific Reports.
Fascinating paper from @IPAVLIDIS @uh_cpl : Absence of stressful conditions accelerates dexterous skill acquisition in Surgery https://t.co/vVr3AQ0E8e "Signals need for a radical rethinking of educational norms and practices" https://t.co/nXpwLneWQ3
Turns out that creating stressful competitive environments isn't the best way to learn tasks. #Woah There is a lesson in here for grad school in general. https://t.co/q5KlpzvUWt https://t.co/klP0czc5Qk
Cool new research from @uh_cpl and the Institute of Reconstructive Surgery @MethodistHosp. It is the complement to the 2012 article @SciReports regarding the deconstructing role of stress on #surgicaltraining.
CPL in collaboration with the Methodist Institute for Reconstructive Surgery published a new paper @SciReports regarding the transformative role of stress-free environments to #surgicaltraining. URL: https://t.co/gAAT7o6Tt0 https://t.co/69mAXFq6LH
The best way to train surgeons may be to remove the stress of residency programs and make surgery a “hobby”. Under relaxed conditions outside a formal educational setting, 15 first-year medical students mastered microsurgical sutur…https://t.co/nK2WdxIwh6
