Summary of "Are incoming pediatric interns ready to obtain the essential components of an informed consent for lumbar puncture?"

In 2013, the Association of American Medical Colleges created the "Core Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for Entering Residency" to more clearly define the set of activities that entering residents should be able to perform on day one of residency without direct supervision. EPA #11 is obtaining informed consent for tests and/or procedures. This EPA acknowledges that an entrustable learner should be able to document a complete consent among other components. The aim of this study is to explore if incoming pediatric interns demonstrated the behaviors of an "entrustable learner" in the domain of documenting informed consent for a common pediatric procedure.
