The implementation of work hour reforms was intended to protect patients from errors by fatigued physicians and to protect trainees from the dangers of sleep deprivation. However, the work and sleep of physicians who have completed training have been seldom studied. In this webcast, co-author Rita N Bakhru, MD, MSCE, will discuss the Critical Care Medicine article “Sleep and Work in ICU Physicians During a Randomized Trial of Nighttime Intensivist Staffing” and the article’s relevance to clinical practice. Participants will be invited to ask questions and engage in a conversation on this topic. Tamas Szakmany, MD, PhD, EDIC, DESA, will moderate the webcast.
