The special focus will be: “clinical decision making in the era of personalized medicine’’.
Clinical decision making got a great boast in the seventies, with the famous publications by Pauker and Kassirer. After a few decades of relative silence, interest in this discipline is again rising, especially in personalized medicine, shared decision making and undergraduate training. The threshold concept they conceived has been proven a cornerstone in clinical practice. Apart from the special focus, the broad field of medical decision making will be addressed in symposia, workshops, pre-conference courses, presentations and poster sessions.
