Retention of Skills after Simulation-Based Training in Orthopedic Surgery

Education involves transferability which means using the knowledge in performance such as surgery and retention which is retaining the knowledge in your head. SIGN has been working on simulators to simulate the placement of distal interlocking screws. We are developing this new technique which we feel will be more reliable.

The SIGN Model which has evolved over the years fits the concept very well. The SIGN Technique is learned through reading through reading the technique manual, watching the technique videos and now using simulators with a SIGN Nail, L-Handle, and Slot Finders. The next step is imprinting this knowledge by doing SIGN Surgery.

We are interested in your feedback regarding implementation of this model.

These skills will decline after six months so we must constantly evaluate our technique.
