“This is the first time we have randomized trial data on this controversial topic,” said study leader Dr. Karl Bilimoria. “You would think for such a hot-button issue we would have had randomized trial data, which is sort of the gold standard for research, years ago.”

Controversial rules that limit the hours young surgeons can work while in training aren’t needed to protect patient safety, a nationwide experiment finds. “This is the first time we have randomized trial data on this controversial topic,” said study leader Dr. Karl Bilimoria. “You would think for such a hot-button issue we would have had randomized trial data, which is sort of the gold standard for research, years ago.”

“When you’re studying something in epidemiology, there’s always going to be a little bit of over-reporting compared to the confirmed number of cases of a condition,” says Chad Achenbach, an infectious-disease specialist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Northwestern University. But even if some of those suspected cases don’t pan out, the increase is still notable—from 2010 to 2014, microcephaly cases in Brazil were hovering around 150 per year.

“They told us very clearly that they thought patient care was better” when residents could work longer shifts within more flexible schedules, said Karl Bilimoria, director of the surgical outcomes and quality improvement center at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine. Bilimoria led the study, which was published online in the New England Journal of Medicine.

It’s a landmark study, testing “a hot button, controversial issue in health care,” said lead author Dr. Karl Bilimoria, director of surgical outcomes and quality improvement at Northwestern University’s Feinberg medical school. Without flexibility, rookie doctors often have to end their shifts in the middle of caring for patients, handing them off to another medical resident. That can happen at critical times, disrupting the doctor-patient relationship, Bilimoria said.
