Train4OrthoMIS Progress Meeting 2

Last 28th April 2016 took place the progress meeting 2 of the European Project Online Vocational Training course on ergonomics for orthopaedic Minimally Invasive Surgery (Train4OrthoMIS).

Train4OrthoMISproject aims to create, implement and set the basis for a pan-European exploitation of a new online VET course focused on ergonomic criteria in the design of working tools and of suitable operating room environments for MIS surgeons and assistants. In addition, of course, this course is also intended for medical students interested in acquiring ergonomic and usability skills associated with MIS techniques as a formative process.

Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) coordinates this initiative. The consortium is also formed by Institut für Biomecchanik (BGU-MURNAU); Centro de Cirugía de Mínima Invasión (CCMIJU); Institute of Mining Technology (KOMAG) and Silesian University of Technology (SUT).

This project is Funded by European Commission ERASMUS+ Call 2014 KA2 – Cooperation and Innovation for Good Practices.

Train4OrthoMIS project was presented at ICEBML2016:18th International Conference on e-Education, e-Business, e-Management and e-Learning

28-29th January, 2016 at Dubai UAE

The ICEBML 2016: 18th International Conference on e-Education, e-Business, e-Management and e-Learning aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of e-Education, e-Business, e-Management and e-Learning. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of e-Education, e-Business, e-Management and e-Learning.

The paper included Train4OrthoMIS first outcomes was prepared and presented during this Conference. The title of the paper is “International E-Learning for Assuring Ergonomic Working Conditions of Orthopaedic Surgeons: First Research Outcomes from Train4OrthoMIS”. The post conference proceedings is abstracted and indexed in the International Science Index, and submitted to be indexed in the Google Scholar, Scopus and Thomson Reuters.
