The international experts in risk management systems frequently put in parallel the fighter pilot and surgeon jobs. That is why STAN Institute was born in 2015 from the merger between the medical world and the aviation community. Professor Jacques Hubert, urological surgeon, and Captain Jean-Pierre Henry, Weapon System Officer on Mirage 2000, met at the training center by simulation for the Mirage 2000D crews on the Nancy Air Base.STAN-Institute-Jean-Pierre-Henry-English

In the late seventies, the aeronautical world has realized that 80% of the main cause of accidents are due to “human factors”. To reduce this risk component, airlines and armies have since set up “non-technical” training, mainly to optimize teamwork of their pilots. Crews are well educated on topics such as secure communication, managing fatigue, the development of synergies and the optimization of leadership.

These techniques, which have proven themselves in the aviation past 30 years, have now been adapted to the medical world by experts from the STAN Institute. This approach aims to help reduce the number of SAEs (Serious Adverse Events) within the operating rooms, including those equipped with da Vinci robot. The STAN Institute training team is highly experimented in learning CRM (Crew Resource Management), TOP (potential optimization techniques) and their use.

The objective of STAN Institute is twofold: simultaneously increase the performance and security within the operating rooms. Proposed programs include improving Fulfilling Individual Potential (FIP) and collective (MTT – Medical Team Training). The training in IUD (Inter University Diploma) of robotic surgery allows the surgeon to pass the “vital course” the first 10 acts and thus obtain a kind of “license” to use the robot in safe conditions. The trainings are conducted in close collaboration with the School of Surgery from the Faculty of Medicine of Nancy, with advanced equipment like the da Vinci robots and simulators Mimic Technologies.
