Medical problem-solving: A reanalysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

11 Scopus citations


Data derived from high-fidelity simulation studies of medical diagnostic reasoning are reanalyzed and critiqued. Results from the reanalyses do not support the earlier findings. The reanalyses also raise questions about the validity of a psychological model of diagnostic inquiry that formed the foundation of the high-fidelity simulation research. Suggestions regarding alternate methods for conducting research on diagnostic problem-solving are offered.
