Abstract

  Clinical expertise being a non-quantifiable term, includes a combination of various factors among which heuristics is a rather important concept. Heuristics is the process to ignore part of data available, so as to provide an easy path to the goals. Reasoning, Heuristics, and therapeutic decision making, are the lesser taught subjects in our curriculum. The best way to plan a treatment algorithm involves expertise to connect the symptoms and signs in a meaningful way, to order appropriate investigations and all data collected is correlated to produce a probable list of differential diagnosis. Analytical reasoning is then used to arrive at the correct answer as to which management protocol would suit a particular patient best!
