Presentation Abstract:

Training the non-dominant hand in realistic simulation exercises has a clear benefit to improving ambidextrous skills, which are particularly important in laparoscopic surgery. Research also demonstrates that systematic non-dominant hand training can result in bilateral transfer; improving psychomotor skills on the dominant hand. Dr. Martina Vitz will demonstrate a unique form of non-dominant hand training using laparoscopic training procedures on simulated situs inversus patients. This rare condition (found in around 1 in 10,000 people) is the perfect opportunity to train familiar sequences using the non-dominant hand.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the benefits of ambidextrous laparoscopic skills.
  2. Understand concepts of bilateral transfer.
  3. Apply non-dominant hand training concepts to laparoscopic course design.
