You may all be interested to see a paper just published by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in the UK entitled "Protecting resources, promoting value:

a doctor’s guide to cutting waste in clinical care"

My favourite part is on P20 where it states so perfectly:

"Fundamental attributes of a value-promoting doctor

A skilled diagnostician:

forms intelligent differential diagnoses and can discern which investigations are truly necessary to diagnose and treat the patient effectively."

The key question is how do you (practically) make our current clinicians "skilled diagnosticians" (those that aren't already of course)?
