Thanks Mark for mentioning this book
I have read this book and found it to be excellent.
What I find very interesting in this book is that the prescribed probabilistic ( Bayesian ) reasoning has not been employed at all in any of the case studies discussed in this book.
The reason is , I believe, that probabilistic reasoning has not been prescribed on grounds of diagnostic accuracy, which is the goal in these case studies as well as in diagnosis in general.
Probabilistic reasoning has been prescribed on grounds of rationality defined as not losing a bet when a diagnosis is looked upon as placing a bet.
But being rational as defined above is not the goal in diagnosis and therefore there is no need to employ probabilistic reasoning in these case studies.
The method of diagnosis employed in these case studies consists of hypothesis generation and verification which is the same method that is employed for diagnosis in general.

To all our educators:
Thanks and congratulations to all of the authors (Olle ten Cate, Eugene Custers, Steve Durning, Judy Bowen, Angela van Zijl and Maria van Loon) for publishing this new and FREE book on clinical reasoning.
The book provides an invaluable update on ten Cate’s “Case Based Clinical Reasoning” approach – its background, how to teach clinical reasoning in this framework, and how to evaluate it.
