It is commonly stated that every 10th patient receive a preventable care injury. Every 10th care bed is occupied by such a patient, at a cost in Sweden alone of 0.8 billion USD a year. Surgery and infections after surgery are responsible for the majority of them.
More and better training can prevent harm to patients. A pilot needs flight hours in a simulator before flying a plane, doctors and nurses also need training hours before being able to operate safely on patients.
Today surgical teams train their skills in clinical training centers. Training during actual surgery is no longer considered ethical. This means that training opportunities are limited and that new cost-efficient training solutions will be needed.
The Virtual Operating Room (VOP) is new way to train surgical teams and health students. The application brings physical team training and simulator training together, in an immersive virtual world (VR). Teams and individuals can practice at the same time technical skills like drilling in a bone and cognitive skills like communication.
