Clinical questions raised by clinicians at the point of care: a systematic review.
Approach to Improving Safety
This systematic review found that half the time clinicians fail to investigate questions they raised in the course of patient care, and this behavior has not changed over time despite the increasing availability of online clinical resources. The authors highlight the need for effective cognitive training and decision support for clinical decision-making. Barriers to seeking answers included insufficient time and doubt regarding the question's relevance.
