During this three part series virtual training program, you’ll be walked through the details of a comprehensive risk management and prevention program for robotics. The program aims to raise awareness about the unique risks associated with robotic surgery and to provide guidance on implementing a systematic approach to risk management for robotic surgery. Plus, for the live attendees, our expert instructors will answer your questions, live!

How does it work? Robotic Surgery and Risk Management: Virtual Conference Series includes three courses (each 90 minutes long). For each course, you’ll have access to the course lecture (streaming media), as well as the support materials: the slide deck (PDF), and the recorded audio track. Each course has been approved for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit or 1 California State Nursing contact hour.
