Judgment Under Uncertainty

In this episode of Critical Matters, we will discuss judgment under uncertainty and how to make better decisions. The episode is based on a recent webinar I had the opportunity to present as part of Sound Critical Care’s Leadership Week. During this episode I will discuss judgments in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, explore the science behind how we make decisions and finally share some thoughts on tools we can utilize to improve our decision process under uncertain conditions.
