Two articles, FYI….
Thanks to Steve Schoenbaum for forwarding this recent article from Ofstad and colleagues – they found that an average of 17 discrete decisions were made per internal medicine encounter, and that the largest fraction of these related to diagnosis (defining the problem).
It brings to mind the earlier study from John Ely on how many clinical knowledge-related questions physicians generated in the course of seeing patients – Answer: Lots !
