148 Chapter 5 Method A web-based survey was developed by a group of six experts in urology. Participants who participated in the 5-Day advanced Robotic Skills Course for the RARP at ORSI Academy were contacted. Since it is possible to participate in this course as part of a fellowship at a CC-ERUS Host centre and as a standalone course all participants were contacted in order to not miss any CC-ERUS fellows. A survey was sent in order to assess their learning process and their present robotic practices. The survey was divided into three modules containing 62 questions (Supplementary data). The questionnaires were sent to the participants using the self-service function of the Data Management module developed by de Research Manager ( Mailing lists were verified with EAU-membership data. All participants in the 5-Day advanced Robotic Skills Course (CC-ERUS) received the survey. After a period of 4 months the survey was closed and results were analysed. Frequency and proportions were used to describe the outcome of the survey. Data analysis was performed using SPSS statistics v24 (IBM, NY).
