Transitions Of Care: Faculty Feedback Improves Intern Sign-Out Of Hospitalized Patients

In this randomized controlled trial, faculty delivered twice-monthly feedback on interns’ written signout to an overnight coverage team.  Over two weeks, the intervention interns demonstrated moderate improvement as measured by the same checklist used to give feedback.  Other outcomes, such as patient safety or night float intern satisfaction, were not measured. — Laura Willet, MD
