The educational value of ward rounds for junior trainees.

The educational value of ward rounds for junior trainees. Med Educ Online. 2015 Jan;20(1):27559 Authors: Laskaratos FM, Wallace D, Gkotsi D, Burns A, Epstein O Abstract The ward round (WR) is a complex task and medical teachers are often faced with the challenge of finding a balance between service provision and clinical development of learners. The educational value of WRs is an under-researched area. This short communication aims to evaluate the educational role of WRs for junior trainees and provides insight into current practices. It also identifies obstacles to effective teaching/training in this setting and provides suggestions for improving the quality of WR teaching. PMID: 28229723 [PubMed]
