Status: Actively Enrolling
Are you an active surgical patient? Would you like to assist new residents with their training?
The purpose of this study is to see if an educational program for surgical residents is effective. The program teaches residents how to best interact with patients. We think your views as a patient are very important to help us study the educational program. Using a survey, we want to understand your satisfaction with pain management, communication and trust with your doctor, and understanding of informed consent. We will also look at your health outcomes after surgery using a national database. We will look at outcomes like how long your stay was and if you had any more visits to the surgeon after your surgery.
The study is sponsored by NIH-NIMHD National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities.
