Researchers at the Air Force Research Lab, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are working with the Institute for Defense Robotic Surgical Education, or InDoRSE, at Keesler Air Force Base, Miss. to study how surgical teams gain trust in new robotic surgery technology to improve training and expand the adoption of improved surgical techniques. InDoRSE began training surgical teams across the Department of Defense on surgical robotics in March 2017 and is the first military training facility of its kind. In an effort to expand and improve training capabilities, the InDoRSE team is confident the study will make training more effective by revealing any potential barriers to uptake and use of surgical robotics.
