Educating the Anesthesia Provider for Urologic Procedures
Current educational modalities allow for the teaching of both basic and advanced skills related to providing anesthesia for urologic procedures while minimizing the potential for patient harm. Partial task training devices allow students to practice and become facile with procedures without putting patients at risk. Simulation is rapidly gaining acceptance as the gold standard for procedural education as full-scale mannequin simulators can be utilized to directly demonstrate the physiologic response to anesthetic interventions associated with these procedures. Simulations can also be used to evaluate clinical performance in multiple areas of patient care. In this chapter, some of the techniques currently being used to teach these skills are outlined and the advantages and limitations of the currently available technology discussed.
