Gordon Caldwell on Misdiagnosis and Quality Indicators for Clinical Consultations

The original link to the Dropbox version of the 2016 presentation that
Helen sent, has the speaker notes, which are tremendously helpful.  I
couldn't open it on my iPad or Android phone, however I could on my desktop
Mac computer with Dropbox installed. I don't think that you need the
Dropbox APP, though. I opened it outside the APP.

I do like Prof. Caldwell's approach. He does go to the concept of "Older
Clinicians" using History (unhurried and with minimal note taking) and
Physical Exam (even if difficult to get to do) as the cornerstones for
Diagnosis and subsequent Medical Decision Making.  As a Cardiologist, I am
reminded of the "Five Fingers of Harvey" (History, Physical Exam, ECG, CXR,
Special Tests) - The History and Physical Exam were paramount.
