How Doctors Think: Clinical judgment and the practice of medicineDe (autor) Kathryn Montgomery
en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 08 Dec 2005
How Doctors Think is divided into four parts. Part one introduces the concept of medicine as a practice rather than a science; part two discusses the idea of causation; part three delves into the process of forming clinical judgment; and part four considers clinical judgment within the uncertain nature of medicine itself. In How Doctors Think, Montgomery contends that assuming medicine is strictly a science can have adverse side effects, and suggests reducing these by recognizing the vital role of clinical judgment.
Montgomery's book is a significant contribution to the ongoing discussion over the nature and role of clinical judgement in medical practice and is required reading for anyone interested in it.
