Clinical questions raised by clinicians at the point of care: a systematic review.
The researchers conducted a systematic review of studies examining the questions that clinicians raise in the context of patient care decisionmaking. They concluded that clinicians frequently raise questions about patient care in their practice. Although they are effective at finding answers to questions they pursue, roughly half of the questions are never pursued.
