  • Aims and objectives of this session

    The European Association of Urology Nurses (EAUN) offer an introductory hands-on training course in Psychomotor skills in robotic surgery for nurses. This course will take you from virtual reality to reality using simulators. Provided by expert trainers, we will offer you an opportunity to discover the challenges and difficulties encountered in the console performing robotic surgery. The main aims of this 90 minute course are testing and improving your psychomotor skills in robotic surgery, gaining an understanding of the importance of communication in robotics (communication role play), and experiencing the requirements of a remote console surgeon and first assistant (using simulation for teamwork training).

    This course is meant for novice and experienced nurses curious to learn more of the fundamentals of robotic surgery and the skills required. Registration is limited to 8 nurses per course.
