    To evaluate the effectiveness of a training program using standardized parents (SPs) to improve the performance of pediatric intensive care fellows in communicating bad news to parents.

    The SPs had received 15 hours of training in role playing performance evaluation, and giving feedback to the physicians.

    At the end of the first session, SPs provided feedback to the physicians under each of the 5 following categories : communication skills, content issues, support systems, interventions, and parent perceptions.

    During the second session, the parent meeting was repeated with a new but similar case scenario and a different set of SPs.

    Both sessions were videotaped, and a rater blinded to the order of the sessions used a weighted scale based on a checklist to score changes in physician performance.


    The performance by the fellows showed a significant mean (±SEM) improvement in scores of 18.1 (±5.2) points (P=007) between the first and the second sessions. (...)
