The article notes “the influence of the surgeon on the informed-consent discussion,” and it is very true that the wording an attending may use to describe a resident’s role in a case has strong influence on a patient response. However, what are your thoughts about the resident taking primary control of the informed consent procedure? Does this suggest to a patient that the resident will have a more influential role in the surgery? If the resident begins this discussion, does an attending’s reiteration of the same information suggest that they have confidence in the resident, or would it signify that the redundancy is necessary because the resident is only a trainee?
