|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00631761|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : March 10, 2008
Last Update Posted : August 19, 2008
Develop a tool to objectively quantify technical skills necessary to perform diagnostic cystoscopy (using Objective Structured Assessment of Technical Skills- OSATS).
Develop criteria by which surgeons skills in diagnostic cystoscopy can be evaluated or judged.
Develop an intervention (1.5 hour workshop) which can be replicated by other residency programs in order to enhance learning of diagnostic cystoscopy. The workshop should be adequate for practicing Gynecologists as well as they already have experience with diagnostic hysteroscopy which uses many of the same concepts.
