MERF, Brisbane – 0700 – 1730

**Workshops 1 & 2 are the same workshop, you do not need to register for both!

This workshop is designed for gynaecologists with laparoscopic skills who wish to expand their knowledge of pelvic and abdominal retroperitoneal anatomy while advancing their laparoscopic surgical skills.

Hands-on laparoscopic cadaveric sessions utilising fresh frozen, female cadavers follow the relevant anatomical ‘fast’ lecture series.

The workshop will be held at the Medical Engineering and Research Facility (MERF), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) facility in Brisbane.

Three participants are assigned to each donor and will be closely supervised by an experienced advanced laparoscopic surgical instructor. Each participant will have the opportunity to operate, assist and observe to optimise the learning experience as they rotate evenly through each step.

The course will focus on demonstration of the pelvic sidewall dissection with a particular focus on the surgical layers and surgical spaces with the anatomical structure contained within them. Retroperitoneal spaces around the bladder, pelvic floor, large bowel and kidneys will all be explored.

The registrants will have the opportunity to complete the anatomical dissection required to perform a Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. There is a very limited number of 18 delegates able to participate.

All participants will be provided with pre-reading and copies of the presentations a week prior to the workshop.

Registrants are expected to confidently increase their anatomical knowledge and awareness, allowing for improved surgical outcomes and reduced complications for their patients.
