    What does it entail for you as a nurse, when your hospital starts up a programme of robot-assisted surgery? How can you efficiently accomplish patient and robot installation? What are the avoidable, common errors that you should not make?

    This course takes a closer look at the practical points of such an event, and takes a closer look at the start-up, learning curve and development of such a programme. It will also give you insight in the pros and cons of robot-assisted surgery, as well as the indications and limitations.
