TRAINING

Robotic Program Success Requires The Finest Training for All Stakeholder

CAVA Robotics International delivers the most advanced robotic program optimization training for administrators, robotic surgeons, and OR crew. Robotics is truly a team sport, requiring that all stakeholders work together with extraordinary efficiency. Here’s how...

CAVA National Training Center at Bellin Health

CAVA delivers world-class 1- and 2-day training for robotic surgeons, OR crews, and administrative leadership. CAVA’s National Training Center at Bellin Health gives our clients an amazing opportunity to interact with a leading CAVA best practice robotic program, providing our hospital clients with insights known only by the very best robotics programs.

Robotic Surgeon Training

CAVA’s robotic surgeons work on a peer-to-peer basis with our clients’ surgeons, leveraging the most advanced robotic techniques, tips for efficiency and supply / reposable usage, and procedural simulation technologies to achieve efficiency, superior clinical outcomes, and minimum supply and reposible usage. The net effect is powerful improvement in clinical quality, cost savings, program cost-effectiveness, and profitability.

CAVA assists our hospital clients in the management of robotic benign hysterectomy and gyn cases; gynecologic oncology; general surgery (single site cholecystectomy; inguinal, ventral, umbilical and incisional hernia procedures; colorectal / LAR; appendectomies; nephrectomies; bariatrics; and lysis cases); and prostatectomy and urologic procedures. Thoracic robotic surgery represents a developing specialization, and CAVA provides assistance in this area as well.

OR Crew Training

CAVA’s OR crew training addresses everything your hospital must know to create a superior, standardized robotic crew training program that is sustainable, scalable, and highly effective. CAVA’s crew training covers such topics as critical stakeholder communication; team building; flow charts and room set-up; roles; carts, trays and supply management; room turnover; and more than 75 job-specific skill training elements to achieve pre-, intra-, and post-op efficiencies.

Administration Training

The role of an enlightened administration in the management of a superior robotic program is enormous. Through customized education, using reL-world experience, case studies and benchmarking examples for best practice performance comparators, administrators are guided to an understanding of the entire robotic program process. Topics include the role of administrator as robotic program facilitator; surgeon alignment; program governance; system-wide program design; equipment footprint, appropriate selection, and contracting; patient selection criteria; scheduling; growth planning; policy and procedures; credentialing; Med Exec; medical malpractice management; data collection and analytics; and financials.

OR Crew Training

CAVA’s ½-day, on-site OR crew workshops address everything your hospital or IDN must know to create a superior, standardized robotic crew training program that is sustainable, scalable, and highly effective. Focusing on your robotic OR techs, RNs, and PAs, CAVA’s crew training, designed by CAVA’s robotic surgeon medical directors Rick Low, MD, and Herb Coussons, MD, covers such topics as critical stakeholder communication; team building; flow charts and room set-up; roles; carts, trays and supply management; room turnover; and more than 75 job-specific skill training elements to achieve pre-, intra-, and post-op efficiencies. While a weak OR crew can undermine the success of a robotic program no matter how many other parts of the program are corrected and improved, a great crew leads to happy surgeons—and that produces a successful robotic program every time.

Administration Training

Completing the CAVA training is education for hospital leadership and its robotic program administration. The role of an enlightened administration in the management of a superior robotic program is enormous. At CAVA, this area features its own in-depth change management module, coupled with ongoing consulting support for hospital management. Through detailed education, with case studies and benchmarking examples for best practice performance comparators, administration is guided to an understanding of the entire robotic program process. Topics include the role of administrator as robotic program facilitator; surgeon alignment; program governance; system-wide program design; equipment footprint, appropriate selection, and contracting; patient selection criteria; scheduling; growth planning; policy and procedures; credentialing; Med Exec; medical malpractice management; data collection and analytics; and financials.
