    Article - En anglais

    Objectives 

    To determine appointment failure rates in pediatric resident continuity clinics nationally, and to identify characteristics of clinics with respect to factors that may affect appointment failure rates.

    Design 

    A one-page questionnaire administered via fac-simile machine to pediatric residencies'continuity clinic directors.

    Results 

    Of 200 continuity clinic directors, 160 (80%) returned the survey.

    The mean no-show percentage was 30.9%, with a range of 3% to 80%. Among the factors studied, only mode of payment emerged as an independent predictor.

    Conclusions 

    Appointment failure is a substantial problem in pediatric resident continuity clinics, which needs attention if resident learning, patient care, and clinic efficiency are to be optimized.
