Abstract

This workshop approaches medical errors from a new and challenging viewpoint by examining the thought processes that influence medical decision making. The “failure to diagnose” accounts for the majority of malpractice suits, and most failures are the result of cognitive errors.

Concepts including “heuristics and “Cognitive Disposition to Respond” are employed. Several case scenarios of adverse patient outcomes will be reviewed.

All physicians involved in managing acutely sick patient should understand this important new insight into medical decision making and its impact on patient care.
