We discuss the importance of the words that we choose to use in our medical documentation.  Words matter! They can generate stigma, and they can bias the decisions we subsequently make as practitioners.

Some of you may have heard of the double tragedy involving Jack Adcock, a six year old who died from sepsis and Dr. Bawa-Garba, a pediatric trainee in the UK convicted of manslaughter in relation to his death and prevented from ever working again. Justice or a clear case of scapegoating?

Listen as we discuss this troubling case and its far-reaching implications for transparency, honest reflection, and patient safety.

We're back after a long summer break.  Enjoy this episode on uncertainty in medicine.  We talk to Arabella Simpkin, an English paediatrician, working in Boston, who spends a lot of time thinking and writing about uncertainty and our need to embrace it, or at the very least, tolerate it graciously.

Part two of our exploration of the connections between art, artistic thinking, creativity, with clinical reasoning and diagnosis.

We speak to Alexa Miller, a medical educator who uses arts-based learning and visual thinking skills to train students and seasoned professionals alike to better observe, describe, communicate, and to tolerate uncertainty.

We also speak with Jay Baruch, a writer, medical educator, and emergency doctor who is also the director the clinical arts and humanities at Brown Medical School.

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.
