Fundamental Surgery Publishes Face Validity Study
Fundamental Surgery publishes its first face validity and product value study at the British Orthopaedic Training Association conference 2018 achieving impressive levels of validation and product value.
In the study conducted at the British Orthopaedic Training Association (BOTA) annual conference on the 14-16th November 2018, 40 participants ranging from medical students to ST8 recorded overwhelmingly positive results on all test metrics confirming the value of the Fundamental Surgery platform.
There were 40 participants from covering a broad range of medical and surgical training from last year of medical school (n=1) to ST8 orthopaedics (N=2) with the median level of training ST3 in orthopaedics (n=6).
Face validity can be defined as the extent of a simulator’s realism and appropriateness when compared to the actual task – as such the results of this study provide evidence that Fundamental Surgery’s Orthopaedics P-THR has shown sufficient results from real users in this pilot study to conclude that the simulation demonstrates face validity.
