In a nutshell: The authors of this study aimed to develop a toolkit to cover the skills required for effective, safe surgical ward care. A comprehensive evidence-based and expert-derived toolkit was developed. It included a novel clinical checklist for ward care (Clinical Skills Assessment for Ward Care: C-SAW-C); a novel team assessment scale for wards rounds (Teamwork Skills Assessment for Ward Care: T-SAW-C); and a revised version of a physician-patient interaction scale (Physician-Patient Interaction Global Rating Scale: PP-GIS). The toolkit can be used to train and debrief residents’ skills and performance.
