Conference Presentation Citations!

See below for the citations from today’s presentation.

If you’re interested in reading some of Dr. Gurpreet Dhaliwal’s publications on diagnostic reasoning, or some of his Clinical Problem Solving Articles (a series in the New England Journal of Medicine that he recommends the use of for cognitive / diagnostic “simulation”), you can look at all of his authored articles in PubMed here. He also gave a shout-out in his grand rounds (see below) to their new Interactive Medical Cases series, which is sort of like a gamified version of the CPS series. Very cool stuff– not all emergency medicine relevant, but a lot of them are.

You can also watch  a wonderful 45 minute Grand Rounds presentation he gave, called From Good to Great, focused on strategies for striving towards expertise in diagnostic reasoning.

Pat Croskerry has written many more articles than the two cited below. If you’re interested in a module-based approach to improving diagnostic reasoning and combating bias, you can find that at the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine website ( Specifically, the modules in the Clinical Reasoning Toolkit provides a great overview of Croskerry’s research and ways to apply it in clinical practice.

Last but not least, here is a link to the recently-published book Avoiding Common Errors in the Emergency Department (2nd edition) that I mentioned at the end.
