Abstract:

Uncertainty of outcome is a recognised attribute of the science that informs medical practice and the service that is patient care. However, treating patients is increasingly seen as an individual or organisational pursuit rooted on immutable facts, which form the basis of a perfect system that is amenable to total control. This paper discusses the need for professionals and the public to be better trained in managing the uncertainty that is inherent in the practice of medicine.
