Open Anterior Resection Multimedia Tool
Prof. Sina Dorudi
Princess Grace Hospital
In 2009 Prof Sina Dorudi and Umar Shariff developed the first teaching resource for open colorectal training in Anterior Resection surgery.
Umar Shariff was pivotal in the development of the online tool and resulting usability and efficacy studies. The positive outcome resulted in the development of the Right Hemicolectomy option scheduled during 2012.
Umar Shariff together with DigiMed converted this into a fully interactive web learning tool with dynamic video and user driven choices.
This version was uploaded to a website to determine usability studies for student training. The response has been overwhelmingly positive driving funding for further development.
