Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to test whether multi-source feedback, including self-assessment and tailored coaching, improves resident communication skills and professionalism. We hypothesize that residents who are assigned to receive multi-source feedback, in addition to receiving standard feedback, will improve significantly more than residents receiving standard feedback alone, as measured by parent and nurse ratings of specific behaviors over time.
