Cadaver Simulation day
19th July 2012
On the 19th July, Terhi and I were asked to participate in a cadaver simulation day at the Royal College of Surgeons. Originally we were only going to be involved insofar as to give our thoughts and feelings on the day events, however we felt it would be a great opportunity to take our camera’s along and obtain data for our own analysis too.
The cadaver simulation day was a research project looking at the utility of using a fresh frozen cadaver for simulation purposes with an emphasis being on realism. The researchers wanted to know if by utilising this form of simulation, training could be more effective and valuable.
Below is a photo of the cadaver researcher’s themselves, Richard Boulton and Amit Bhalla, as well as Transient Teams principle investigator Professor Roger Kneebone. The last photo is the lovely Terhi behind a camera capturing the action as it happens.
