Download iTunes

Episode 22 has Sandy and Cory discussing a systematic review on whether biases are present in healthcare decisions and if so, do they have a negative impact. Are biases something that we need to worry about? Is Cory a robot? Also, Sandy coerces her DPT student Christa Wolf to join the show for an important perspective from the student side. Take a listen as the crew discusses these matters and their implications in matters such as the concept of N of 1.

Cognitive biases associated with medical decisions: a systematic review.
Gustavo Saposnik, Donald Redelmeier, Christian C. Ruff, and Philippe N. Tobler.
