Peer-review of surgical videos to evaluate the relationship between surgeon skill and outcomes following transurethral resection of bladder tumor in an integrated academic medical system

Project: Research project

Project Details


This application proposes the use of a structured, surgical video peer-review process to determine 1) whether surgeon-specific variation in skill performing TURBT is quantifiable across NM and 2) if surgeon skill is associated with the rate of detrusor sampling during TURBT. Evaluating for a link between skill and TURBT outcomes will be foundational for a larger project where we plan to evaluate if surgical coaching interventions can improve surgeon skill and whether improving skill leads to increased rates of detrusor sampling across the healthcare system.
