Why do some clinicians make better decisions than others?

Do all clinicians become better decision-makers over time?

Is decision-making in healthcare an independent and trainable skill?

This book is about the practice of medicine and the decision-making of the people we entrust with our care. While treatments, technologies and professional roles have evolved over the years, the essential act of decision-making has remained constant.

Through personal experience, research and feedback from colleagues across healthcare, the authors examine how metacognition – or thinking about thinking – can provide a toolkit with which to improve the decision-making of all healthcare professionals.

The rise of digital tools and AI-based clinical support systems makes this a critical time to grasp how human decision-makers operate and how to best harness the increasing volume of healthcare data available.

This is a thought-provoking read for professionals and curious minds alike, packed with ideas and practical advice about how to improve decision-making in healthcare and deliver better outcomes for patients.
