NIRS fNIRS Cognitive load assessment in surgeons brain and skill acquisition in surgical training
Guest lecturers: Dr Daniel Richard Leff and Dr. Harsimrat Singh
Technical skills are a critical component of every surgeon. The early assessment of the learning curve of surgical skills can help assess the efficacy of training and adapt it to individual needs. How do we consistently assess the cognitive strain on surgeons during surgeries? Can strategies be developed to help trainees and surgeons cope with excessive cognitive load in the operating theatre? These topics and much more were discussed in this webinar.
