Assessment of R2D2 protocol for surgery residents in understanding the discharge processes of patients: single institutional study

Author(s): Dr. Noorul Mohamed and Dr. M Ramula
Abstract: The process of discharging a patient is very crucial not only for the patient but also for the family which is going to support the patient after discharge. In a developing country like India the role of the residents is very important in making the patient understand the operative treatment and guiding him through the discharge and follow up in a department like Surgery. Patients are routinely `given a discharge summary about patient details including operative procedures and review, but the understanding of the process by the rural population need to be evaluated. Standardization of discussion with the patient, content of discharge, delivery of post-operative instructions may help these rural patients to understand their diagnosis surgical treatment, and follow-up process, and treatment plan. In this study we apply R2D2 protocol for standardizing this discharge procedure in improving the residents understanding on the importance of discharge process and the patients understanding of their treatment.
