Simulation changing surgical training

Mr Ram Nataraja in the MCH surgical simulation centre
Surgical training has changed radically in the last few decades.  Competency-based training has replaced the traditional apprenticeship model based on Halsted’s principles, dating back to the 19th century.

In two review articles published in the Journal of Pediatric Urology, Monash University’s Mr Ram Nataraja reveals the significant benefits of surgical simulation in surgical training and education.

Mr Nataraja is a consultant paediatric and neonatal surgeon and Director of surgical simulation at Monash Children’s Hospital, and a senior lecturer at Monash University’s Department of Paediatrics.

“Healthcare education has evolved rapidly in the last twenty years, with changes especially evident in surgical training,” Mr Nataraja said.

“Simulation methodology is now an integral part of training various surgical subspecialties, especially for technical skills learning.”

“However, it is important to recognise that the role of simulation in surgical education is broader than merely technical skill acquisition.”

Many adverse incidents in surgical practice arise from or involve failures in communication, teamwork, and situational awareness, rather than technical expertise.

Mr Nataraja said that simulation can promote the learning, practice, refinement, and assessment of both technical and non-technical skills in a patient-safe environment.

“In addition to allowing learners to make mistakes without adverse patient impacts, simulation also allows for specific rehearsal of rare or unique situations,” he said.

Simulation modalities that have been shown to enhance surgical training and education include (but are not limited to): open surgical models and trainers, laparoscopic bench trainers, virtual reality trainers, simulated patients and role-play, hybrid simulation and scenario-based simulation.

“Some of these modalities are readily available and others more expensive; located in specialised surgical simulation centres,” Mr Nataraja said.

“Advances in simulator design have resulted in decreased cost and bring aspects of simulation-based medical education within the reach of all departments, even in resource-constrained environments.”

Mr Nataraja review includes an overview of essential educational principles that underpin contemporary medical education and support the practical application of surgical simulation.  His key message is that surgical simulation does not have to be expensive or time-consuming to be effective, and can be incorporated into busy surgical timetables.

Gastro-intestinal tumours recur later than other cancers

Professor Eva Segelov
The world’s largest study of post-surgical outcomes of particular neuroendocrine tumours has revealed very different recurrence patterns compared to usual cancers.

Led by Monash University’s Director of Oncology Professor Eva Segelov, the collaborative research team published their results in the high impact journal JAMA Oncology this month.

Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are a diverse, uncommon group of cancers with increasing incidence and prevalence.  An extremely heterogeneous type of cancer, prognosis of patients with NETs ranges from months in aggressive disease to decades for indolent disease.

Professor Segelov said the study is the largest ever series—by a factor of 10—in reporting outcomes after curative surgery for a rare cancer, Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET), arising from the gut or pancreas,” Professor Segelov said.

“For the first time, our study shows very different recurrence patterns for this kind of tumour.”

“On average NETs take seven to ten years to recur, whereas most other cancers spread to another organ like the liver or lungs within three to five years.”

The significant clinical implications of this study are that these patients need a different follow-up schedule to other cancer patients.

“Instead of having frequent visits and scans in the first few years, these patients should have more intense follow-up after five years—this is quite a paradigm shift,” Professor Segelov said.

Professor Segelov said future research should focus on the cost-effectiveness of surveillance and its impact on patient outcomes.

This work was undertaken using the very large population database of Ontario, Canada, reporting more than 900 cases, and was performed  within CommNETS, an international research collaboration co-founded by Professor Segelov.

New oncology intergroup meetings at MHTP – all welcome

Oncology intergroup lab members

For the first time, weekly oncology intergroup lab meetings are taking place at the Monash Health Translation Precinct (MHTP).

Facilitated by Director of Oncology Professor Eva Segelov, the meetings bring together the four cancer research groups in the precinct: the Southey, Azad, Shortt and Segelov labs.

Professor Segelov said the cancer and blood portfolio at MHTP has increased significantly, with many new staff, students and projects.

“These meetings are a new initiative, prompted by achieving a critical mass of researchers, translational scientists and clinicians,” Professor Segelov said.

“The meetings alternate between journal club presentations and topic presentations, relating to current work, as well as invited speakers.”

“Each meeting starts with an informal discussion about grants, upcoming talks, troubleshooting of projects, asking for assistance or informing peers of new techniques, equipment or skills.”

“The first few meetings were introductory, where we explored the many and varied skills within the groups, ranging from bioinformatics to highly specialised lab techniques.”

“The meeting also opens the opportunity to practice an upcoming talk, so that any lab member with an upcoming conference or other presentation can have a full run-through their talk and benefit from productive feedback and a preview of what questions they may be asked.”

Professor Segelov said she has already seen much more interaction between the research groups both during the sessions and throughout the week—expertise has been shared and combined projects and even grants have been planned.

“A particular emphasis is on giving the clinical perspective as to how this work may help patients in the future and what the opportunities as well as challenges may be,” she said.

All researchers across the Monash campus are welcome to attend the Friday meetings on level 7 of the TRF, either weekly or based on a topic.  For the upcoming schedule, please contact Daphne Day or Heide Fettke.

DCEP regimen buys time for multiple myeloma patients

CID seminar: Novel Stroke Treatments: Cells and a Vitamin, 17 April

April 17, 12-1pm, Seminar Room 1, TRF

Presented by Professor Chris Sobey
NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and Professor in Physiology
Co-Head, Vascular Biology & Immunopharmacology Group, La Trobe University

Stroke accounts for more than 10% of deaths worldwide, and over a third of survivors are left with major neurological impairment. The need for new and effective therapies for stroke is therefore clear and urgent. While some advances have been made toward understanding its mechanisms, still only one intervention has been found to reduce brain injury following clinical stroke – the ‘clot-buster’ recombinant tissue plasminogen activator. Unfortunately however, with a short time window of only 4.5 h, this therapy is available to less than 10% of stroke patients. For further advances in the clinical treatment of ischemic stroke, the complex mechanisms of cellular injury following cerebral ischemia must be elucidated to provide novel targets for future therapies. This presentation will describe some of our recent work examining novel therapies such as human amnion epithelial cells and vitamin D in experimental stroke models.

Chris Sobey is an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and Professor in Physiology who moved from the Monash Pharmacology Department to the School of Life Sciences at La Trobe University in 2017. There, together with Prof Grant Drummond, the new HOD of Physiology Anatomy & Microbiology, Chris co-leads the Vascular Biology & Immunopharmacology Group comprising 20 members. Chris has more than 190 publications and an H index of 56 from his studies of vascular diseases involving oxidative stress and inflammation – especially stroke, atherosclerosis and hypertension. His current work is investigating the inflammatory mechanisms occurring in the brain after stroke in order to identify and develop new treatments for stroke patients. Novel approaches include systemic cell therapy, Th2 cytokines, estrogen receptor binding drugs and vitamin D.

From Cells to Systems: RNA Binding Proteins at the Heart of Gene Regulation in Health and Disease, 17 April

Gene therapy regime that restores mitochondrial function and prevents mdx cardiomyopathy, 19 April

This week's Hudson seminar will be held in Lecture Theatre 1, MMC on Thursday 19th April 12pm-1pm.
Our speaker will be Professor Livia Hool, PhD FAHA FCANZ, NHMRC Senior Research Fellow, President International Society for Heart Research (Australasian Section)

She will be presenting 'Gene therapy regime that restores mitochondrial function and prevents mdx cardiomyopathy'
Livia Hool completed her PhD in cellular electrophysiology at Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney in 1995. She then undertook 2 years postdoctoral research as a recipient of an American Heart Association Postdoctoral Fellowship in the School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. In 1998 she was awarded a Peter Doherty Fellowship from NHMRC and relocated to The University of Western Australia where she established the Cardiovascular Electrophysiology Laboratory in the Physiology Department. She has received continuous national competitive funding since establishing the laboratory and previously held an NHMRC Career Development Award and an ARC Future Fellowship. She is currently the recipient of an NHMRC Senior Research Fellowship, Faculty-at-Large of the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in Sydney, President of the International Society for Heart Research Australasian Section and Founding Director and General Secretary of the Australian Cardiovascular Alliance. The work of her laboratory is concerned with understanding the role that the L-type Ca2+ channel plays in mediating alterations in calcium and metabolic activity in the heart leading to sudden cardiac death and heart failure. This is studied at the level of purified channel protein, the single cell, the whole heart ex vivo and in murine models of cardiomyopathy strategically directed towards building basic knowledge, method development, discovery, and translation.

A light lunch and refreshments will follow this presentation. 

Khai Gene Leong's PhD mid-candidature review: Cyclophilins in renal disease. 24 April

All staff and students are invited to Khai Gene Leong's PhD mid-candidature review.

24 April, 9-11am, Conference Room, Department of Nephrology, Monash Medical Centre

Title: Cyclophilins in renal disease

Synopsis:  Inflammation and apoptosis are important underlying causes of renal injury/
dysfunction, and progressive renal fibrosis leading to chronic kidney disease.
However, despite the large burden of acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney
disease (CKD), there is no current successful clinical therapeutics that halts the
process of AKI, and progression of AKI to CKD. Cyclophilins are ubiquitously
expressed proteins that are physiologically involved in protein folding. Of these,
Cyclophilin A (CypA) has a key role in regulating the inflammatory process, and
Cyclophlin D (CypD) is an essential component of the mitochondrial permeability
membrane pore opening leading to cell death. I will explore the roles of CypA and
CypD in contributing to renal disease to aid in future development of therapeutics
that may lessen the incidence and prevalence of AKI and CKD.

Novel therapies and vaccine strategies to reduce the global burden of ear and lung disease, 20 April

Friday 20 April, 11am-12pm, Level 2 seminar and tearoom, MIMR building

Dr Lea-Ann Kirkham is an NHMRC Career Development Fellow at the University of Western Australia and Microbiology Lead in the Wesfarmers Centre of Vaccines and Infectious Diseases at the Telethon Kids Institute. Her vision is to develop improved therapies, including vaccines and vaccine schedules, to significantly reduce the global burden of childhood ear and lung diseases from nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) and Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus).

Her PhD research at Glasgow University led to development of a protein-based pneumococcal vaccine that is currently in clinical trials. In 2011, her team’s research on identifying the predominant cause of ear infections in Australian children contributed to introduction of a new vaccine onto the National Immunisation Program. This vaccine has recently been shown to reduce ear infection rates in Indigenous Australian children.

Dr Kirkham’s current research focuses on nasopharyngeal colonisation as a target for disease prevention. Specifically, she is leading an NHMRC-funded project to evaluate a novel bacterial therapy to prevent pathogenic colonisation of the respiratory tract and ultimately disease. She is also co-investigator on an NHMRC-funded clinical trial in Papua New Guinea comparing different pneumococcal vaccines and vaccine schedules to find the best approach to protect high-risk infants from pneumococcal disease. Data from this study will guide vaccine policy for resource-poor settings.

All staff and students are invited to Beisi Jiang's PhD mid-candidature review.

2 May, 10-11am, Professor Julian Smith's office, Level 5, Block E, Department of Surgery

Presentation Title: Telehealth in Palliative Care: The Clinical Impact and Efficiency of Service

Synopsis:  In Australia and many other parts of the world, the demand for palliative care services is increasing due to the aging of the population and the increases in the prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases that accompany aging.  In palliative care, telehealth has been used to link people and their primary care providers with specialist palliative care advice regardless of geographical barriers, however, with little conclusive evidence available on outcomes and efficiency. Therefore, in this study, we conduct a Real-World Evidence integrated RCT to investigate the beneficiary of telehealth in home-based palliative care in terms of symptom management, quality of life, psychological support and service efficiency.
