This updated Time-and-Motion study chosen by Jason Frank is a secondary analysis of the iCOMPARE cluster RCT of 2 duty hours approaches back in episode 165.
The authors selected 6 US university affiliated and community-based hospitals that had interns working on general medicine wards in 2016. They hired 23 observers and trained them who over 3 months, conducted 1:1 observations of 194 workdays.
Jon believes the observers deserve a medal of honour for spending nearly 200 days hospitals watching interns walk around!
