Training induces cognitive bias: the case of a simulation-based emergency airway curriculum.

Park CS, Stojiljkovic L, Milicic B, et al. Simulation in healthcare : journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. 2014;9:85-93.

This educational study found that anesthesiology residents were more likely to initiate an airway technique for which they had received simulation training, even if another technique (for which they received didactic training) would have been more appropriate. This finding demonstrates how training may inadvertently introduce cognitive bias.
