Heuristics and Biases in Medical Decision-Making
Detmer, Don E.; And Others
Journal of Medical Education, 53, 8, 682-3, Aug 78
Evidence of biasing in judgments made by physicians was examined via individual interviews and written questionnaires from 38 university surgeons. Each surgeon estimated six quantities: his own number of major procedures during the past year, that of his specialty, and that of the entire service, as well as similar estimates for in-hospital mortality. Statistical misconceptions are shown. (LBH)
