Over the last 10 years, significant advances have been made and successful techniques have now been developed that effectively treat ankle instability via the arthroscope.Currently arthroscopic later...
Overprescribing of antibiotics by general practitioners (GPs) is seen as a major driver of antibiotic resistance. Training in communication skills and C-reactive protein (CRP) testing both appear effe...
To objectively investigate the transfer validity of simulation training using wireless elbow-worn motion sensors intraoperatively to assess whether surgical simulation leads to improvements in intraop...
Simulation in surgery is a safe and cost-effective way of training. Operating room performance is improved after simulation training. The necessary attributes of surgical simulators are acceptability ...
This prospective randomized study aims for determination whether focused simulator based laparoscopic camera training in novices can improve camera performance in an actual clinical situa...
Often the less experienced as medical students are charged with the role as camera navigator and assistant during laparoscopic surgery. Camera navigation is generally considered an easy sk...
Basic Life Support (BLS) is important for outcome in cardiac arrest.Therefore, it is crucial to improve the quality of education in resuscitation training. Better training will eventually ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether simulation training improves the performance during arthroscopic surgery ('keyhole' surgery into a joint).
114 patients between 18 and 50 years with an isolated focal cartilage defect in the knee will be randomized to either receive arthroscopic microfracture or arthroscopic debridement. Both g...
The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.
The assignment, to each of several particular cost-centers, of an equitable proportion of the costs of activities that serve all of them. Cost-center usually refers to institutional departments or services.
Coded listings of physician or other professional services using units that indicate the relative value of the various services they perform. They take into account time, skill, and overhead cost required for each service, but generally do not consider the relative cost-effectiveness. Appropriate conversion factors can be used to translate the abstract units of the relative value scales into dollar fees for each service based on work expended, practice costs, and training costs.
Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.
