Approaching Surgery Simulation Education from a Patient-Centered Pathway
Surgical simulation training has tended to focus on individual technical skills for procedures. While the acquisition of individual technical skills is desirable and should be encouraged, competence in clinical practice requires the application of multiple technical and nontechnical skills in their appropriate context as part of a continuous patient-centered pathway of care. To provide competency-based simulation education in a realistic clinical context, we implemented a pathway of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative simulation encounters for general surgery residents.
