Physician role in medical decision making
My commentary in Letters to the Editor in the Aug. 2, 2011 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine reflects very well the results of your study. My comment was primarily related to end of life decisions, but I believe, applies to all patient care decisions. Physicians' failure to make their best recommendations to patients is an all too common deficiency. I hope your publication fosters a much needed change.
