Another enjoyable Diagnostic Error in Medicine conference, this time in Art's home town of Boston (actually, Newton...).  In this episode we discuss our thoughts inspired by one of the sessions, run by Doug Salvador and Harry Hoar from Baystate Medical Centre. They addressed how to get one's own hospital administration to engage in Diagnostic Error.  Remember to check the website IMreasoning.com for the attachment so you can follow along while you listen.


This is part one of a two-part series exploring the deep connections between creative thinking and clinical reasoning.  We discuss Art's and Glenn's work as poets and physicians, and how each endeavour enriches the other.


Enjoy an episode of STC.  This time WE weren't in the hot seat!  Humbling to see an excellent trainee in action.

We finally got the chance to collaborate with Genevieve on her case for STC.  And we were keen to get this out just before GPTEC. Enjoy!

We were privileged to speak to one of our patients, recently treated by our service, about her experience while her doctors struggled with diagnostic uncertainty.  The usual suspects were at play; uncommon diagnoses, uncommon presentations, cognitive biases, systems issues, etc.

Check out the new look to our website! www.imreasoning.com 


This time, we did not have a pause button! and we could not edit out all the times we sounded a little thick.  So enjoy the raw experience.  We did!

Finally, our first STC International.  An interesting case from Broome, Western Australia.  Thanks Casey Parker.


While waiting for another of our home-grown cases we decided to do a STC using a published case from the Clinical Problem-Solving series of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Let us know what you think of this format!

Do all diagnostic errors occur because we're rushing, and prematurely jumping to conclusions? Can we course-correct by simply slowing down and by being mindful of our own inherent biases?

Geoff Norman and his colleagues review the literature to try to answer these and other questions about where errors in clinical reasoning come from.
