To evaluate the utility of « clinic room » case presentation in the ambulatory care setting.
Neurology is increasingly an outpatient specialty.
The transition from ward to clinic presents challenges for student and resident education.
Interaction between attending physician and trainee is limited by busy patient schedules.
New educational strategies must be developed to address the particular challenges of the outpatient clinic.
One strategy to increase the quality and length of attending-trainee interaction is case presentation in the patient's presence.
The authors randomized 100 patients seen in an academic neuromuscular clinic to presentation in a conference room or clinic room.
In the latter, all interaction between the trainee and attending occurred in the patient's presence.
The attending recorded the time spent with the trainee and patient.
The patient was asked to complete a survey and provide certain demographic information.
The two groups were similar demographically.
Time spent by the attending physician was similar between the two settings.
Although there was no difference in patient satisfaction, those randomized to clinic room presentation were significantly more likely (p<0.002) to feel their questions were answered adequately.
There were trends toward these patients feeling less embarrassed, feeling that they were treated respectfully, and feeling that adequate time was spent with them. (...)
