You are invited to participate in a research study into the barriers and drivers to adoption of Robotic Assisted Surgery [RAS] systems. This will include personal opinions and any benefits or limitations you have perceived from your experiences.
The survey will look at your attitudes toward RAS before adopting/using it for the first time, and your attitudes after adopting/using RAS in real-world practice.
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
To qualify for participation, you must have prior understanding/experience of both conventional surgery (open or laparoscopic) and robotic-assisted surgery (RAS).
You should also have personal experience of the system in one of the following capacities (or similar);
- Surgeon, or Surgeon in Training
