Abstract: We measured the diagnostic accuracy of physicians on medically recognizable patient scenarios(lists of symptoms, risk factors, and prior medical conditions), with and without a diagnostic decision aid. The diagnostic accuracy increased from 54.8% to 79.8% with a list of likely diagnoses. There may be value in displaying lists of possible diagnoses as a decision aid during diagnostic medical encounters.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: Understand the impact of presenting proposed diagnosis list to doctors at the point of care.
