Surgical Skill Evaluation Model for Virtual Surgical Training
As a safe, cost-effective, and easily accessible tool for gaining experience in surgery, the simulation-based surgical skill training has attracted more and more attention in modern hospitals and institutes. One of the most important advantages of virtual surgical training is affording useful instructional feedback to users. However, how to provide systemic and competitive surgical technique evaluation to trainees is still untouched. In this paper, for UK’s Royal Bournemouth Hospital virtual surgery system, we creatively constructed a surgical technique evaluation model which consists of static structure and dynamic process, as well as an index system which covers aspects of surgery performance.
