Randomized Controlled Trial of Multi-Source Feedback to Pediatric Residents
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
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.
