CARING PROVIDERS ON STAFF
Our profession is to heal. In a patient encounter, we consider a right and good healing action for that patient in his or her particular circumstances. A right healing action is one informed by the scientific and clinical evidence. A good action, takes into account the patient's values and preferences and is consistent with the physician's own clinical judgment.
Clinical judgment consists of three steps:
1) What is wrong with this patient?
2) What can be done for this patient?
3) What should be done for this patient?
