About this book

This book provides a broad overview on training in Minimal Access Surgery, with expert opinions from leaders in the field clarifying the definitions and terminology related to competence and accreditation. It also provides expert advice on how to set up a training unit and explores the role and impact of all types of simulations on training including virtual reality simulation. How to design a competency-based training curriculum in advanced laparoscopic surgery is also explored along with in depth examination of the role of assessment and competency based accreditation. Training in Minimal Access Surgery is a valuable resource for all health care professionals who are involved in training and education in Minimal Access Surgery including trainers and supervisors.

​There is well established and robust evidence to support the benefits of laparoscopic surgery in terms of better pain control, fewer complications and shorter length of stay with an earlier return to work. Hence, there is now widespread adoption of laparoscopic techniques in many surgical specialties including colorectal and morbid obesity surgery across the world.
