Mark: do you know who raised the history and physical idea this morning.
This is a critical area which hasn’t attracted sufficient attention, but don’t know if there would be enough for a special theme issue.
Think of all those wonderful ‘Rational Exam’ papers in JAMA, which are so critical to optimising diagnosis.
I’ve been doing a little work with some folk in the UK lately on it.

Subject: [IMPROVEDX] Improving the diagnosis of concussions
Maybe the best ‘improving diagnosis’ story of the decade: All the progress being made to diagnose concussion. A fascinating review of the progress can be found here <https://www.statnews.com/2017/12/18/concussion-diagnosis-technology/> .
And Dr Ann McKee was named “Bostonian of the Year” for her work on CTE (in a town where there is a LOT of competition for medical research notoriety).
Although as a Society we continue to focus on improving healthcare systems, the diagnostic process, and clinical reasoning, you just can’t beat having a better test, coupled with enhanced awareness.
