Many physicians overestimate their ability to assess patients’ risk of Ebola

27 agosto 2015

While most primary care physicians responding to a survey expressed confidence in their ability to identify potential cases of Ebola and communicate Ebola risks to their patients, when asked how they would care for hypothetical patients who might have been exposed to Ebola, less than 70 percent gave answers fitting CDC guidelines. Those least likely to encounter an Ebola patient were most likely to choose overly intense management of patients actually at low risk.
