Examples of interaction patterns noted during observations classified as: (a) attending physician-dominated; (b) of shared dominance, and (c) widely interactive. Each diagram represents an entire observed session. Arrows denote the direction of interaction (from a speaker to the individual who spoke next), and line thickness is proportional to the number of times each interaction occurred during the observed session.
A = attending physician;
F = family medicine resident;
Sr = senior paediatric resident;
Jr = junior paediatric resident;
S = medical student
