Targit Academy

Proctored training

The Academy also facilitates proctored training for TARGIT naïve centers that have recently acquired the equipment.  This is done by an experienced trainer and provides an opportunity for the extended multidisciplinary team including the operating theatre staff to familiarize themselves with the technical aspects of the procedure.  In order to ensure that adequate number of trainers are available, a training the trainer program is being designed and will commence soon.

Although the technique is relatively straightforward, the success of this technology requires adequate training and attention to details. The lessons learned from the introduction of new techniques in surgery in the past, need to be appreciated and it is vital that lack of training does not bring this powerful new technique into disrepute.
