LapPass is a basic laparoscopic skill, training, assessment and certification course comprising 5 separate but interwoven tasks that the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Great Britain & Ireland (ALSGBI accredited surgical skills centre offers to trainee general surgeons and intercalating medical students in the MSc in Laparoscopic surgery at Queen Mary University London to train, assess and certify competency in basic laparoscopic surgery. It was developed, validated, and standardized by the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Great Britain & Ireland (ALSGBI) to support trainee general surgeons in developing and maintaining good basic laparoscopic skills & habits as early as possible in their surgical careers.
We aim to critically evaluate our centre's delivery of this programme against ALSGBI's standards for Quality Assurance. Our main objective was to vet and benchmark our centre's teaching, assessment and certification approach of our LapPass diet to ALSGBI's indicative standards. Additionally, to pinpoint areas for potential enhancement with a projected re-audit in 6 months for Quality improvement.
We utilized the benchmark provided by ALSGBI "Setting up a LapPass course": and embarked on a comprehensive evaluation analysis of our centre's pedagogical strategies and assessment techniques specific to the LapPass course using a comparative 2x2 table addressing components from:
• General structure
• Set requirements.
• Resources
• Cost
• Assessors
• Exam day
The audit showcased our centre's significant alignment with ALSGBI standards, with over 98% benchmarked in primary areas including preparatory
While our centre robustly benchmarks with ALSGBI standards in most areas, our audit identified a number of quality improvement areas for our next audit
