Results/ Scholarship Assessing Competencies of Pediatric Residents in an Outpatient Setting. Sandra Braganza, Iman Sharif, Philip Ozuah. Objectives: To determine whether the assessment of pediatric residents’ ACGME competencies by peers, support staff, and parents differs from the assessment by preceptors alone. To identify particular ACGME competencies for which differences between preceptor and peer/staff/parent assessments are most pronounced.
Results/ Scholarship Methods: 14 statements assessing: Interpersonal & Communication Skills- Communication and Empathy Professionalism- Respect & Integrity
Results/ Scholarship Results: 271 surveys completed Compared to preceptors, resident peers reported more problems with Communication and Empathy. Preceptors noted more problems with Communication than did parents. Parents were more likely to report problems with Empathy and Respect than were preceptors. Conclusion: 360 degree assessment was useful in eliciting different evaluations of competencies by different observers that interact with pediatric residents.
Results/ Scholarship Parental Assessment of Quality of Ambulatory Care: How Do Attendings and Residents Compare? Andrew D. Racine, Sheila Liewehr, Laura Weingart, Scott D. Krugman. Eastern Society for Pediatric Research. March Objective: To compare the quality of pediatric ambulatory care reported by parents of children with resident versus attending primary care providers.
Results/ Scholarship Results: 473 surveys were returned No differences were found between residents and attendings in aggregate scores for any of the 5 quality domains But on 2 individual items: does the doctor explain things to your satisfaction, and can the doctor arrange for referrals- attending scores were higher. Conclusions: Parental assessment of the overall quality of care delivered by pediatric residents compares favorably to that delivered in similar settings by attending pediatricians.
