Many of the questions and comments have indirectly referred to the degree that patients understand that residents will be involved in a procedure, and what exactly that might mean may differ between individual physicians as well as patients.
How much do you think a patient needs to "understand" the resident's role in a procedure? How do you verify that with a patient during the consent process and explain that more specifically - especially when as the resident you may not fully know what your role might be? What ethical issues does this raise and how can we resolve them?
I'll ask Dr. Moon our expert ethicist to weigh in as well, but would love to hear comments from all.
Also, this question refers to our poll question for this forum that you probably see as well in this window. If you haven't already submitted your vote/response please do so.
