Editorial Reviews

Review

"[T]he chapters present a comprehensive overview... [They] contain valuable information for researchers of medical decdision making, bringing together the topics that matter to help improve medical decisions... What makes this volume valuable...is that the reader is tempted to look further than at her/his primary topic of interest. Theorists will learn of practical applications...and designers of computer support will be informed about policy matters. European Association of Decision Making Bulletin

"...a valuable contribution to the field." Applied Cognitive Psychology

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Conveying advanced content in a manner that is appealing to the reader while remaining academically rigorous is a challenge that few have mastered. Gensler's "Introduction to Logic" is a great example of this kind of achievement.

Unfortunately, this book does not pass the same test. It is a great treatment of the topic, but certainly doesn't fit the definition of "interesting," "engaging," or "a real page-turner."

If you aren't very interested in medical decision making as a field of study, you should find something that is more accessible.

Format: Hardcover
(Summary from the book jacket) Decision making is a crucial element in the field of medicine. The physician has to determine what is wrong with the patient and recommend treatment, while the patient has to decide whether or not to seek medical care and whether to go along with the treatment recommended by the physician. Health policy makers and health insurers have to decide what to promote, what to discourage, and what to pay for. Together, these decisions determine the quality of health care that is provided. "Decision Making in Health Care" is an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of the field of medical decision making - a rapidly expanding field that includes quantitative theoretical tools for modeling decisions, psychological research on how decisions are actually made, and applied research on how physicians and patient decision making can be improved.
