CBC’s radio show “The Current” recently featured ER physician, Dr. Pat Croskerry, and his efforts to decrease the rate of diagnostic errors via teaching medical students how to improve their critical thinking skills.

We coach them in the things to look out for that may bias their decision making.” Listen to the rest of the CBC interview here at Can anything be done to prevent hospital misdiagnoses?
