Ergonomics: Best Practices for Longevity

SurgeonMasters Web-Conference

FORE designates this live activity for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ (Available until 03/14/2020)

Web-Conference Description:

The physical health of surgeons is critical for a long, satisfying career in the OR, and a healthy life in retirement. Years of performing surgical procedures can lead to chronic pain and other injuries.  In fact, the surgical profession sees more than 1 million injuries a year.  This webinar will provide current best practices in ergonomics and recommendations for future research. We will begin by briefly exploring the need for a better understanding of ergonomics in surgery, and then review the future of ergonomics in surgical environments.
