Aim: Inexperienced operating assistants are often tasked with the important role of handling camera navigation during laparoscopic surgery. Incorrect handling can lead to poor visualization and increased operating time. The objective of this research was to examine benefit of camera navigation training in laparoscopic used pelvic box based on Objective Structured Assessment of Camera Navigation Skills (OSA CNS) assessment and explore factors correlated to difference skill after training. Materials and methods: An experimental study (pre–post interventional study) was conducted at the training room of Indonesia Clinical Training and Education Centre (ICTEC) Faculty of Medicine Universitas Indonesia-Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital (CMH), on December 2018 to January 2019. Participants were Obstetrics and Gynecology resident Medical Faculty of Universitas Indonesia. We did evaluation before training and 1, 2, 3 weeks after training used OSA CNS. Data analysis used paired-t test. Results: There were significant increasing OSA CNS score after camera navigation training used pelvic box. Average OSA CNS score before training and 1, 2, 3 weeks after training were 15.00 ± 2.03, 17.60 ± 2.69, 16.36 ± 1.84, 17.80 ± 2.26, respectively. Optimum duration of OSA CNS evaluation was 3 weeks after the training. Female gender and low experience were two factors influence camera navigation skill after the training. Conclusion: Laparoscopy camera navigation training used pelvic box could be applied to support residency program curriculum and there were increasing camera navigation skills after training used pelvic box. Female gender and low experience were factors significant correlate to training outcome of camera navigation skill used pelvic box. Clinical significance: Camera navigation training used pelvic box is a critical component for teaching safe endoscopic practices in our Ob/Gyn residency training program.
