Working in a pediatric hospice

Dear Sir or Madam,

Anyone who works in pediatric hospice centers is familiar with the reaction they receive from others, 'I could not work there – How do you do it?' However, those on the inside know that it is a place of life. We visited the pediatric hospice 'Balthasar' in Olpe, Germany and listened to what is special about this workplace and the experiences of those who work there. Click here for the video.

Also new is our interview on the topic "RealSpine: realistic surgical simulation". The simulation allows young doctors to train for spinal column operations and thus learn techniques in a very realistic environment.

Have a nice day!

Surgeons need a great sense of touch. They first have to acquire this skill in simulation training before they can perform surgery on actual patients. Having said that, simulators are not just meant to teach the right movements; ideally, they should also provide a true-to-life experience of the surgical field – as is the case in RealSpine surgical training.
