Gaze-Down! Medical Education Feb 2013
The February 2013 issue of Medical Education is online!
There's a pretty cool, pretty simple study showing how endoscopic training on a gaze-down display leads to superior performance than training on a gaze-up display. It is surprising how many medical devices and techniques I've encountered assume the doctor or nurse is able to manipulate something while looking at a display screen somewhere else. Even video gamers address the screen head-on. Why, when the stakes are so much higher, do we like doctors to crane their necks?
