Hi Lisa:

I hope this helps. It may not be directly relevant but it is about trauma triage and heuristics:

Hi all,

Long-time reader, first time poster- I am an ED physician and I will be giving a lecture for a trauma symposium (audience primarily EMS, nursing, and some residents). I plan to talk about cognitive bias in the evaluation of the trauma patient (for example, missing a diagnosis like STEMI or stroke that led to the MVC or fall because of the focus on the injuries themselves). I have a number of good case examples, but was looking for any literature that might be available. My searches have not turned up much thus far. If anyone knows of anything pertinent I would be grateful. Thanks much in advance,
