When doctors learn a new procedure or product, they train on plastic or computer simulators, and/or actual live patients (who often don’t realize it). This causes unnecessary harm and suffering, and surgical errors cost the NHS billions.
This of course wasn’t a problem when few innovations came through, but today it has doubled from just 5 years ago. Patients are injured and even killed, because learning curves aren’t completed before going into live surgery (including children).
We train doctors to be better surgeons, by providing donated cadaveric tissue instead of training on live patients.
Our company’s potential is enormous, but our topic is emotional and sensitive. Guidance end expert advise will give us a higher chance of getting this right, and if we do, we will all benefit: for every surgeon we train, the improved outcomes impacts every patient they will ever operate on.
Our work is threefold:
Policy – to change guidelines
Funding – to give doctors the funds and time off to train
Availability – increase awareness of cadaver donations (as opposed to just organ donation, which most have heard of).
For us, our work really DO make a difference between life and death. We are passionate about our vision, and hope you will be too.
