Module 4: Team Training & Communication Skills

Module 4: Team Training & Communication Skills

The use of a robotic system creates unique demands, which are beyond those demands in open and laparoscopic surgery.   The principle difference is the physical separation of the primary surgeon from the patient, the operative team members and operative site.  The result is that the surgeon must rely even more upon team participation and clear, unambiguous communication with team members.
