Flash Class Competition on Popular Science of Spine Surgery

In recent years, the importance of spine surgery has become increasingly prominent as medical technology continues to advance and people become more concerned about their health. In order to further popularize the knowledge of spine surgery and enhance public health awareness and medical literacy, a flash class competition on popular science was initiated by the Department of Spine Surgery of West China Hospital of Sichuan University. Contestants from medical institutions at all levels in the province gave presentations on the practical problems and difficulties encountered by spine surgery patients in the treatment and rehabilitation process. A total of 29 sessions were shared in this competition, and the contestants from 10 cities or prefectures in Sichuan were passionate about discussing the questions and ideas presented by the audiences.

Prof. Liu Hao, honorary chairman of the committee, introduced the flash class on popular science of West China Hospital, Sichuan University. The flash class on popular science was created by Prof. Liu Hao, which is based on clinical work details and small knowledge points, using the form of “flash culture” to make special, vivid image interpretation at fixed time in the daily shift exchange process. The purpose is to help medical staff to learn bit by bit and finally improve their theoretical and practical skills. This form is the first of its kind in the province, and the flash class was warmly received by all workers in the department since its launching, attracting online participation from the West China Orthopaedic Alliance hospitals and gradually expanding to health care workers in spine medicine across the province. Prof. Liu hoped that through the flash class on popular science, resource sharing, complementary advantages and common development can be achieved. He also expected that this activity will play a positive role in promoting the construction of orthopedic discipline, medical technology and research and teaching capabilities of each institutions, and in cultivating high-end talents.
