Cognitive biases contribute to diagnostic missteps, delays, and errors. This publication uses case-based illustrations to explore the effect of common cognitive biases (e.g., confirmation, anchoring, and overconfidence) on care. The author suggests feedback, healthy skepticism, and open discussion as tactics to reduce errors stemming from bias in decision-making.
