SC30.03 - E-Learning in Thoracic Oncology (ID 6728)
14:30 - 15:45 | Author(s): J. Assouad
Advances in modern technologies allows for an increasing opportunities in surgical and medical education. The main advantages for e-learning process are: accessibility and flexibility. A range of platforms offers educational programs accessible at work or home with total temporal and spatial freedom. Trainees are allowed to access their learning environment at a convenient time and relevant to their own training needs. Several techniques are available: web-based data, interactive online modules, and virtual reality. This is especially true within surgical training where the development of new techniques constantly evolves. The rapid and constant evolution in oncology knowledge’s makes it relevant for e-leaning process. E learning allows trainees to apply and be assessed on the new information in a safe setting. In addition, all contents can be discussed and debated around the medical world without any limits. The level of trainees recall can be significantly increased by e-learning techniques because it stimulates multi-sensory experiences. E learning offers also large possibilities for decision making based on available information and interactive decision-making process. Surgical e-learning programs include the development of knowledge, technical skills, non-technical skills and decision-making process. The content of all the e-learning modules should be relevant; best available, up to date and critically appraised evidence should supports the information contained within the modules. E-learning surgical programs should be based on an understanding of educational principles, peer review resources associated to creativity. It could be highly interactive. Immersive questions and answers for clinical setting permit to trainee to progress through scenarios and makes the relevant decisions and choices. Trainees have to evolve with their decisions and receive feedback as to the choices they have made. These interactive models can be created with text on the page or with simulators. E-learning modules should be used as a complementary tool to traditional learning methods. Authors will present their e-learning thoracic platform created at September 2013 : “Tenon Thoracic Institute“ (www.tenon-thoracic-institute).This e-leaning thoracic platform develops several e-learning tools: live from OR with interactive discussion with faculty, round table with exerts, didactic session for young trainees. All the aspects around thoracic pathology are treated: oncology, surgery, anaesthesiology, radiology, etc. Authors will discuss the relevance of such a platform, the lack of its content and future e-leaning projects.
