CANCELLED: 10th Annual Wisconsin Nerve Lab
This activity has been cancelled.
Statement of Need
Neurological surgery is an area of medicine that requires exceptional precision. Surgical labs such as this course allow medical professionals the opportunity to practice skills in a risk-free environment. Participants will get the opportunity to study the intricacies of real anatomy. For many participants, this course will provide experience performing real surgery when they would not be permitted to practice on patients, providing them with a better framework for understanding the activities of the OR and the decisions of a surgeon. Participants will also be given the opportunity to practice diagnostic ultrasound and compare that to real anatomical dissections.
Participants will advance their skill sets by performing surgical techniques under supervised guidance on cadaver specimens and simulated tissue. Participants will utilize equivalent surgical tools as they will use when adequately prepared in the operative theatre. An ultrasound machine will be brought in to simulate patient imaging.
The cadaver lab provides a unique opportunity to apply knowledge to cadaver specimen anatomy and the skills needed to surgically correct pathophysiology. The unique anatomy and pathology of humans cannot be effectively replicated. The skills gained from detailed, planned cadaver study is the gold standard for learning real applications of medical knowledge and generating understanding and continued learning in practice.
This activity is designed for physicians, midlevel providers, fellows, residents, and researchers in Neurological Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Anesthesia, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and related specialties who are interested in improving patient outcomes, interprofessional teamwork, and gaining hands-on experience in spine surgery techniques. It is also open to medical and undergraduate students with interest in these fields.
Elements of Competence
This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties' areas of practice-based learning and improvement, medical knowledge, and interpersonal and communication skills.
This activity also focuses on the Interprofessional competencies of roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communcation, and teams/teamwork.
At the conclusion of this educational, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate various approaches to expose different nerves in the upper and lower extremities.
- Demonstrate microsurgical suturing techniques.
- Perform diagnostic ultrasound for different nerves in the upper and lower extremity.
