Advantages of a Simulation-Based Learning System
With the Eye Surgery Simulator at the core, HelpMeSee’s instructor-led training courses are integrated training courses that include interactive eBooks, eLearning, facilitated discussions with a certified instructor, and guided sessions that allow the learner to expand their knowledge of the procedure and improve their surgical skills through repeated practice.
The HelpMeSee curriculum utilizes various instructional activities that are planned to enable meeting objectives at every stage of the learning journey. It includes a pre-study eBook and eLearning, classroom sessions, simulator sessions, team training, debrief sessions, and more. This ensures a comprehensive learning experience.
The eBook provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of surgical techniques and procedures. It includes graphics, animations and live surgery videos, and other features for a richer learning experience. It is designed to help learners gain a deeper understanding of topics ranging from general principles of surgery to more specific details on the anatomy and physiology of the eye.
Used in conjunction with our overall simulation course, our courses include eLearning with an option for classroom if required to support the attainment of the necessary knowledge and comprehension in advance of simulation training.
HelpMeSee maintains a standardized curriculum across all its global training centers.
Standardized techniques for learners carefully chosen by experienced mentors and supported through the simulation
Each maneuver within the training assignments has been reviewed and chosen in consultation with highly experienced mentors with decades of practice in the field. Thus, our simulation closely mirrors the feeling/haptic response to what is experienced in live surgery and allows the attainment of surgical skills that are transferable to live surgery. They have ensured that all techniques are safe and effective.
Certified ophthalmologists are responsible for overseeing all HelpMeSee training. All instructors are trained and qualified in the delivery of each course.
Training in several languages
In addition to English, key training materials are available in Mandarin, Spanish, and French to support training in different regions. Wherever possible, training is delivered by certified instructors in the local language.
Practice until perfect
The instructor-led simulation-based training is designed to have the learner, through repeated practice, become competent, then proficient, and ultimately gain the confidence that supports the transition of those skills to live surgery. Inherent in this practice is the unique opportunity to make errors and develop the appropriate techniques to make early corrections and thus avoid complications. The data from the simulation system, coupled with the expert instructor guidance, supports the learner’s path to proficiency and confidence. It is not unusual for a learner to make 50 or more attempts at a complex task during a scheduled training event.
Establishing ecosystems for sustainable solutions for health equity
In our own facilities, and in partnership with prestigious ophthalmic institutions, HelpMeSee simulation-based training is available in 11 cities around the world.
