Gaze training enhances laparoscopic technical skill acquisition and multi-tasking performance: a randomized, controlled study.
Wilson, Mark R.
Vine, Samuel J.
The operating room environment is replete with stressors and distractions that increase the attention demands of what are already complex psychomotor procedures. Contemporary research in other fields (e.g., sport) has revealed that gaze training interventions may support the development of robust movement skills. This current study was designed to examine the utility of gaze training for technical laparoscopic skills and to test performance under multitasking conditions.
