According to this qualitative study at a single academic institution, staff surgeons and intensivists frequently exclude resident physicians from patient care conversations. Reasons included lack of trust, need for timely communication, and a perception that residents cannot adequately contribute to decision making. This finding has important implications for the integration of communication training during medical education.
