Do You Trust That Intern?

Trust: How do residents decide to trust their interns?  Researchers at multiple internal medicine residencies explored this issue, deriving a model using qualitative methods, interviews and focus groups, and validating the resultant model with a quantitative survey.  The factors which carried the most weight were intern-related, e.g. reliability and competence, followed closely by system-related factors such as patient characteristics and system supports. — Laura Willett, MD
