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.

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!

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.

Doctors should always strive to present themselves as unbreakable to their patients... All doctors are smart... All patients have a definitive diagnosis...
Believe it or not, versions of these ideas, and many others, are pervasive in our medical education institutions, and to varying degrees are believed and practiced by doctors everywhere.
In this episode, we debunk and discuss our favourite myths. Enjoy!

Transillumination of the sinuses? shifting dullness? the puddle sign?
In this episode we poke fun and debunk our favourite "useless" physical exam manoeuvres that we continue to teach our medical students. We couldn't cover all of them in one go, so stay tuned for more...
Try the app DxLogic on the iPhone to have a quick reference to the utility of many studied history features and physical exam manoeuvres.
