Hi All,

Just attended excellent grand rounds by Dr. Catherine Lucey from UCSF. Topic was teaching clinical reasoning to medical students and residents. I do know of ACP book teaching clinical reasoning. Any other resources available to venture into this field?

Thanks

Hello all,

There appears to be a lot of evidence for racial/ethnic/gender disparities in medical treatment and outcomes.
We all know diagnosis is the gateway to treatment and outcomes.
So is there evidence for racial disparity/inequity in medical diagnosis?
The Sunday NY Times reiterated the study about job resumes receiving significantly different response rates from employers based on whether they came from a black or a white sounding name.  The article reports on a new study of response to simple email queries to public offices (sheriff, library, school district) from back and white sounding names and show an 8-13% higher rate of no-response or less cordial response to inquiries from blacks, worse in more heavily white geographic areas.  This was presumed to be due to unconscious bias.
I’m looking for material (studies, articles, writers, speakers) on racial/ethnic/gender disparities related to diagnosis. Or treatment/outcome disparities linked back to diagnosis.  Know of any?

Ruth
