Early diagnostic suggestions improve accuracy of family physicians: a randomized controlled trial in Greece.

Kostopoulou O, Lionis C, Angelaki A, et al. Family practice. 2015;32:323-8.

In this Greek study, providing early support (consisting of possible diagnoses for clinicians to consider) to primary care physicians improved their diagnostic accuracy on computerized vignettes. This finding matches a previous study that used the same methodology for primary care physicians in the United Kingdom, suggesting the intervention may have broad applicability.
