Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Design: A retrospective investigation of individual shifts between 1st February to 29th February 2020. Variables measured will include shift type, shift timing, number of junior doctors supervised, years of Australian registration, and departmental factors (total day presentations, percentage ED length of stay < 4hrs, non-admitted length of stay < 4hrs, admitted length of stay < 4hrs, admitted non-Short Stay length of stay < 4hrs). Univariate negative binomial regression will be used to investigate individual determinants of the model. Statistically significant components (p < 0.05) will be included in a multivariate regression model to calculate direction and magnitude of effects. Baseline productivity data with descriptive statistics will also be reported.
Funding: Nil funding. Research to be performed in the Chief Investigator's spare time.
