Advanced Interventional Pulmonology procedures: Training guidelines from the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand.
Summary of "Advanced Interventional Pulmonology procedures: Training guidelines from the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand."
Training in Interventional Pulmonology procedures is increasing in popularity. However the nature of training is difficult to define, particularly with respect to an adequate number of cases. These guidelines approach training not just from a modest number of supervised cases, but also from a range of educational and outcome targets which give a rounded approach to the issue. These include pre-requisite skills from basic procedures, the place of simulated training, formal simulation testing, modest procedural outcome and side effect targets, audit presentations, ongoing reading and hands-on training expectations. All of this would still be under the supervision of an experienced trainer. © 2012 The Authors. Respirology © 2012 Asian Pacific Society of Respirology.
