Although quantitative mathematical models can guide clinical decision making, clinicians rarely use formal computations to make patient care decisions in day-to-day practice. Rather, an intuitive understanding of probabilities is combined with cognitive processes called heuristics to guide clinical judgment. Heuristics are often referred to as rules of thumb, educated guesses, or mental shortcuts.

The Importance of Cognitive Errors in Diagnosis and Strategies to Minimize Them

Cognitive biases contribute to diagnostic missteps, delays, and errors. This publication uses case-based illustrations to explore the effect of common cognitive biases e. The author suggests feedback, healthy skepticism, and open discussion as tactics to reduce errors stemming from bias in decision-making. Sort by Relevance Published Date. Search Tips.

Although quantitative mathematical models can guide clinical decision making, clinicians rarely use formal computations to make patient care decisions in day-to-day practice. Rather, an intuitive understanding of probabilities is combined with cognitive processes called heuristics to guide clinical judgment. Heuristics are often referred to as rules of thumb, educated guesses, or mental shortcuts. Heuristics usually involve pattern recognition and rely on a subconscious integration of somewhat haphazardly gathered patient data with prior experience rather than on a conscious generation of a rigorous differential diagnosis that is formally evaluated using specific data from the literature. Such informal reasoning is often fallible because heuristics may cause several types of unconscious errors cognitive errors. Studies suggest that more medical errors involve cognitive error than lack of knowledge or information. There are many types of cognitive errors, and although it is obviously more important to avoid errors than to properly classify them once made, being aware of common types of cognitive errors can help clinicians recognize and avoid them.

The book begins with an introduction that explains the concept of cognitive errors and their importance in clinical medicine and current controversies within healthcare. The core of the book features chapters dedicated to particular cognitive biases; cases are presented and followed by a discussion of the clinician's rationale and an overview of the particular cognitive bias. Engaging and easy to read, this text provides strategies on minimizing cognitive errors in various medical and professional settings.

DOI: In the area of patient safety, recent attention has focused on diagnostic error. The reduction of diagnostic error is an important goal because of its associated morbidity and potential preventability. A critical subset of diagnostic errors arises through cognitive errors, especially those associated with failures in perception, failed heuristics, and biases; collectively, these have been referred to as cognitive dispositions to respond CDRs.

Diagnostic Error in Internal Medicine. Arch Intern Med. Each case was evaluated to identify system-related and cognitive factors underlying error using record reviews and, if possible, provider interviews. Seven cases reflected no-fault errors alone.

Traditionally, research has examined systems- and cognitive-based sources of diagnostic error as individual entities. However, half of all errors have origins in both domains. We conducted a focused ethnography of inpatient physicians at two academic institutions to understand how systems-based problems contribute to cognitive errors in diagnosis. Medicine teams were observed on rounds and during post-round work after which interviews were conducted. Field notes related to the diagnostic process and the work system were recorded, and findings were organized into themes.
