Later this week I’ll be giving a lecture on clinical reasoning at the 15th European Congress of Internal Medicine in Amsterdam with Dr. Fabrizio Elia. Title and short abstract below!
Fabrizio Elia and Vincenzo Crupi
Red pill or blue pill? Clinical decision making in internal medicine
Abstract. As contemporary cognitive neuroscience tells us, both ordinary and expert thinking is predominantly fast, heuristic, and fallible. Logical and optimal thinking, on the other hand, is slow, effortful, and comparatively rare. How these two kinds of processes intertwine in clinical reasoning? How can understanding the cognitive bases of medical practice improve healthcare outcomes?
