MEdIC Series: The Case of the Unexpected Outcome – Expert Review and Curated Commentary

The Case of the Unexpected Outcome presented an attending trying to deal with a poor outcome in one of their patients despite competent medical management. No matter how good of a clinician we are, odds are that at some point this will happen to all of us. In addition to being potentially emotionally devastating, a serious miss can make us question our competence and shift our practice patterns from evidence- to anecdote-based. Check out the ALiEM community’s discussion of the case.

Learn more and join the conversation after reading this MEdIC by +Brent Thoma and +Teresa Chan with comments from  +David Marcus, Ryan Radecki, and the community.
