Abstract:

Evaluation of surgical skill in MIS can be made more accurate, objective, and general by considering cognitive and environmental factors such as mental workload, stress, situation awareness, and level of comfort with complex tools. This research will show that a comprehensive framework for measuring cognitive human factors in MIS settings will provide an important, statistically significant set of largely overlooked, in this domain nonredundant metrics for evaluating performance in the context of new technologies, tasks, and learning methodologies.
