Smart Aim Statement
- Our study aimed to assess the effect of a combined resident-education-and rounding-checklist-protocol intervention on the percentage of patients discharged with active CCM orders on teaching general medicine services.
- We hypothesized that our intervention would reduce the number of patients discharged on CCM (an estimate of overall inappropriate CCM use) by 50% over a 6-8 week period
