The ASSERT centre at UCC is a state-of-the art medical simulation facility designed to allow healthcare professionals from a wide range of specialties train and practice to predefined proficiency standards. The aim is to decrease medical error and improve patient safety.
The inaugural International Vascular Course at ASSERT, Cork was help on November 1st and 2nd 2018. Delegates travelled from around Ireland, the UK and the continent to develop their skills in open and endovascular surgical procedures, in a simulated operating theatre and endovascular suite environment. Pictured are ASSERT staff, course faculty and trainees at the end of the 2-day course, which was a great success.
