With the support of the Lifelong learning programme of the European Union (Leonardo Da Vinci Multilateral Projects for Development of Innovation).
LapForm project aims to create, implement and set the basis for a pan-European exploitation of a new online course in laparoscopy ergonomics applied to product development of instruments addressed to design professionals, and posture and workplace-related ergonomics for surgeons.
The main objective of the proposal is the development of the contents and the implementation of an online course to assure surgeons and instruments designers a worthy education and training along their professional career regarding ergonomics applied to laparoscopy, matching product innovation with the needs of laparoscopic surgeons and the latter with their working environment. The e-learning tool resulting from the project will be available online in 4 European languages (English, Spanish, Polish and German) in order to increase acceptance of the course.
The general objective will be achieved through the achievements of the following partial objectives:
- Definition of the formative needs in matter of the target groups across Europe, and definition of VET Training curriculum.
- Development of the formative contents satisfying the needs.
In general, the contents will include knowledge related to ergonomics training and laparoscopic surgery, in order to train Laparoscopic surgeons and Instruments designers.
