In our clinical lives we are faced with the task of seeing more patients in much less time. How do we manage? By spending less time on each patient and yet ensuring a precise physical assessment in the process.
“8 in 10 misdiagnoses were due, in part, to problems in the patient encounter, such as errors during the physical exam or medical history-taking.” -American Medical Association
