SAGES is proud to announce that the FUSE educational modules are
available, free-of-charge, in English, Spanish, Chinese (simplified) and now in French!
SAGES would like to thank Fédération de Chirurgie Viscérale et Digestive (FCVD) for providing the translated FUSE didactics.
The educational modules, which consist of a web-based multimedia
presentation of didactic content, comprehensively cover the basic
knowledge fundamental to the safe use of surgical energy-based devices
in the operating room, endoscopic suite and other procedural areas.
The FUSE didactic materials and exam were designed to inform and
promote best practices for the use of electrosurgical, ultrasonic and other
energy sources in the OR. Any health care professional who has ever used
an energy device in the OR will better understand how it works, when to
apply it, and what possible hazards and errors can occur.
