Simulation[edit | edit source]
Learners will learn how to perform laparoscopy in a box trainer they can build themselves, performing the actual steps of the procedure in an anatomic surgical field.
For the GSTC judges, if you would like to learn more specifics on our simulation and how this will translate clinically, please click here.
Building the Box Trainer[edit | edit source]
Learners will then follow step-by-step instructions on how to build the laparoscopic box trainer out of cardboard and other local materials.
Building the Ectopic Simulation[edit | edit source]
Next learners will construct the simulation of an ectopic pregnancy out of local materials for performance of the task.
How this looks like on the platform[edit | edit source]
Testing Ease of Build and Usability[edit | edit source]
ALL-SAFE conducted a study to assess the ease of build and usability for both the box trainer and ectopic sim which guided our modeling.
