I concur with Mark that losing Bob Wears is a huge loss to the patient safety and diagnosis error community.

He was a true breakthrough thinker, who always strived and more often than not succeeded in pushing the envelope for critically thinking through the difficult issues in diagnosis.
He was particularly sensitive to the issues of hindsight bias that plague much of our work, and I will miss both his admonitions to avoid this tendency, as well as suggestions of how to overcome it .


I attached a brief editorial I had the privilege to write with him more than a decade ago.
