Ethicon Endo-Surgery (EES UK) are delighted to continue working with clinicians, health care professionals and recognised training centres to deliver training programmes to facilitate the safe adoption of new surgical procedures and the correct application of new technologies. Our aim is to focus on “team training” to ensure that all key stakeholders in the surgical unit are aware of the implications upon service delivery and patient care when a change in practice occurs. Thus the courses we offer form part of a wider sequential training approach to deliver instruction for those who assess, treat and care for the patient throughout the treatment pathway.

EES UK have for the 2009, planned eight courses at their European Surgical Institute (ESI) in Hamburg. Two courses run in the week of 10th to 13th of February 2008, and two run in the week of 3-6 March.  Courses are a 2 day course aimed at Senior Trainees and Consultant Surgeons and are generally arranged around regional/geographical areas.  The courses centers around open discussions, laparoscopic procedure techniques and the management of complications etc.. The training also involves suturing techniques with hands-on training in both a dry and wet laboratory.  Each course has places for 12 surgeons and 6 nurses.

These courses are Part II in the ALS recognised sequential training approach, after which surgeons work with ALS preceptors to provide additional team training at the preceptor’s hospital, followed by at least two preceptoring events at the preceptee’s unit.  Ethicon Endo-Surgery will have seventy-two places available at ESI in 2009 for surgeons committed to going through the complete sequential training programme.
