This month’s podcast feature follows up a session at SHM’s annual meeting, HM14, on clinical decision making in which Dr. Gupreet Dhaliwal, professor of medicine at the University of California at San Francisco, diagnosed two complex patient cases presented by Dr. Daniel Brotman, director of the hospitalist program at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Dhaliwal says while rare and challenging cases are appealing, diagnosing common problems presented by many cases is a great way to demonstrate thinking through a diagnosis. He also discusses how cognitive bias can work in a doctor’s favor. Dr. Brotman explains why the teamwork on problem solving that happens at these live sessions is one of their best features.
