Uncertainty is common in the diagnostic process due to complexity in clinical scenarios. This study describes a simulation-based educational intervention to develop resident skills in discussing clinical uncertainty with patients and families. The results of the program illustrate the strong potential of simulation as a method to enhance communication skills.
