Valencia, 14-15 May 2015.
Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia organize the ORTHOBIOMED fourth Project meeting (14-15 May).(On-line transfer project in Osteosynthesis for Surgical Management of Fractures for Orthopedic Surgeons and Biomedical Engineers), in the IBV facilities
The main activities of the meeting are to evaluate the pilot test, to decide the changes/improvements of training materials, and to plan the field trial.
ORTHOBIOMED is a cofinanced project (Leonard da Vinci program). This project is aimed at adapting and integrating innovative training courses and results from previous Leonardo da Vinci project into continuing VET of medicine professionals (residents, surgeons) and professionals involved in implants development and manufacturing
The project consortium involves training organisations and universities, hospitals and university clinics. All partners participated in a number of projects within the EU LLL programmes.
The consortium consists of medical specialists who provide clinical cases and materials on fracture surgery and diagnosis (MUP, DOS), experts in biomechanics (IBV), experts in educational technology and e-learning materials development and delivery (TeLearn - TUS); institutions providing continuing education for professionals in mechanical engineering (FBE at TUS, IBV) and in orthopaedics (MUP, DOS).
