    Tutorial for Activa SC, Activa PC and Activa RC Systems

    This course is focused on the Activa® neurostimulator portfolio (Activa SC, Activa PC, and Activa RC). The Activa portfolio takes advantage of the most advanced programming platform for deep brain stimulation from Medtronic.

    The training modules and simulations cover topics such a:
    • An overview of new features, including groups, interleaving, and clinical applications
    • Advanced programming, including data storage within the INS
    • Improved impedance measurement and resistance to environmental interference
    This self-paced program can be used:
    • As an end-to-end system tutorial
    • For guidance on specific functions

    On-sites and Proctorships

    These programs are available to educate and train clinicians who want to enhance their DBS patient referral, patient management, or surgical skills.

    On-site Training

    Medtronic offers both clinical and surgical on-site training.

    On-site training in a clinical setting covers the following topics:

    • Therapy overview
    • Patient selection for DBS
    • Patient education and referral process
    • Using the 8840 N’Vision® Programmer
    • Managing patients with DBS Therapy

    On-site training in a surgical setting is intended for neurosurgeons, neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, and neurologists who want to learn or enhance their skills with stereotactic mapping, planning, and frame placement; and interoperative monitoring and recording.

    For more information, contact a Medtronic representative.


    Proctorships

    A proctorship training session involves the trainer observing and coaching the trainee(s) in the trainee’s clinical or surgical environment. The trainer provides verbal coaching only and does not engage in any “hands-on” procedures.

    Proctorships in a clinical setting cover the following topics:

    • Therapy overview
    • Patient selection for DBS
    • Patient education and referral process
    • Using the 8840 N’Vision® Programmer
    • Managing patients with DBS Therapy

    Proctorships in a surgical setting are intended for neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, and neurologists who want to learn or enhance their skills with stereotactic mapping, planning, and frame placement; and intraoperative monitoring and recording.

    For more information, contact a Medtronic representative.

    Workshops

    Intermediate Level

    Focus on Referring and Practice Management for DBS Therapy
    This 1-day course is designed for neurologists and other clinicians who have experience referring patients for DBS surgery and managing post-operative patient care.

    The course is intended to:

    • Help clinicians enhance their patient identification for those most likely to benefit from DBS Therapy
    • Enable clinicians involved in managing patients with DBS Therapy to achieve the highest level of effectiveness for their patients using complex management strategies
    • Provide a peer-to-peer opportunity for clinicians to discuss challenges and strategies with other experienced DBS clinicians to allow all to benefit from the collective experience and knowledge

    For more information, contact a Medtronic representative.


    Advanced Level

    Focus on Innovative Theory and Technique for DBS Therapy
    This 1-day course offers well-established DBS clinicians the latest in surgical and post-operative management techniques. It is formatted as a roundtable discussion moderated by DBS Therapy thought leaders.

    Participants will have the opportunity to:

    • Learn and discuss new ideas and procedures for DBS Therapy
    • Discuss the latest trends in surgical techniques and post-operative management strategies
    • Understand more about technological advances

    For more information, contact a Medtronic representative.
