Dr Anjali Dhulia, Chief Medical Officer, invites you to a special Grand Round on Cognitive Bias. Cognitive Bias is increasingly recognised as an important source of medical error. Despite the prevalence of cognitive biases, their influence and potential effects on clinical decision making are rarely discussed, and as a result, not addressed. But as health systems and hospitals drive forward in their pursuit to provide high-quality care in safe environments, it has become more important than ever before to acknowledge the cognitive components that influence clinicians’ decision making.
Professor Ian Scott is a Consultant General Physician and Director of Internal Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. Cognitive Bias in medical decision making is one of Professor Scott’s areas of interest and expertise.
COVID-19 Medical Grand Rounds are open to all Monash Health employees.
Please join us at 12:30pm on Wednesday 3 June 2020 via Webex.
