Scottish Surgical Simulation Collaborative Focus Group

Take-home simulation – making it work
An initiative by the Scottish Surgical Simulation Collaborative (SSSC)

Various good quality take-home laparoscopic box trainers are now available, some with online curricula. Their use by trainees is known to improve performance in theatre, but surgeons tend not to practice. Hear about our earlier study, try out the EOSim laparoscopic trainer for yourselves, and contribute to a focus group which will influence the design of a new incentivised laparoscopy practice programme for Scottish core surgical trainees. Free refreshments and patries!

The focus group will take place as part of the ASGBI’s International Surgical Congress from 7.45am to 9.00am on Thursday 4th May 2017 in the Fyne room. If you would like to take part, please email Vivienne Blackhall at
