Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery: Communication in a Complex Socio-Technical System.

Cunningham, Stacey.

Abstract: Surgical robots are controlled from a remote console, inhibiting face-to-face communication between the surgeon and the rest of the team. This research viewed the robotic operating room as a socio-technical system where team members adapt to technology by modifying their communication. The goal of this research was to understand the nature of communication in robotic surgery. A field stu... read more
