As every clinician knows, decision making is the trickiest part of medicine.
Everyone expects you to make 'perfect' decisions - but even after years of medical training and clinical experience, it is often not easy to figure out what the right decision might be.
“Clinical Sense” consists of a series of scenarios which put your clinical judgement to the test, challenging you to decide between options that are seemingly similar, but ever so different in consequences.
Are you astute enough to make the right call over and over again? Are you tactful enough to work yourself out of the tricky spots you get yourself into owing to that SINGLE “not so correct” decision you've made?
Use “Clinical Sense” to brush up your clinical acumen in those short yet invaluable pockets of time in your busy schedule!
Each scenario is short enough to be completed within a couple of minutes, but at the same time provides insight into key aspects of the clinical approach.
Experienced MDs can expect a great refresher; residents and medical students will have the opportunity to improve their clinical decision making skills.
Behind the seemingly simple cartoon images lies a highly credible medical resource. Each scenario is referenced against contemporary medical literature, and follows current management guidelines.
New scenarios are added on a regular basis, and can downloaded without updating the app!

When a child is in the hospital, parents can be overwhelmed by nurses and doctors rushing around, speaking medical jargon. Sometimes health care providers think they are clearly communicating, but don’t check to make sure you understand their instructions. If you are able to teach back the information in your own words, you can be confident you do understand.
The Our Journey™ with Cancer app is designed to:
*** Be used from the time of admission throughout hospitalization, to facilitate conversations between families and the health care team.
*** Help parents identify what they need to know before going home.
*** Give parents a safe way to admit what they don’t know or understand, and ask questions.
*** Cue families on what they need to teach back to or demonstrate for their nurse or doctor. This gives the health care provider an opportunity to confirm information and skills and correct misunderstandings.
*** Help families feel confident that they can safely care for their child at home after discharge from the hospital, know the signs of possible problems, and know how to respond.
About The Emily Center at Phoenix Children’s Hospital:
Founded in 1990, the Center is named after Emily Anderson. Emily fought a rare form of leukemia for four years before losing her battle a few days before her seventh birthday.
Frustrated by the lack of easy to understand information about Emily’s illness, her parents founded The Emily Center so that families of sick children would always have access to pediatric health information that is accurate, easy to understand, and free of charge to Arizona’s families. http://www.emilycenter.org and on Twitter @emilycenter
The Our Journey™ with Cancer mobile app has been funded by a grant from the Caitlin Robb Foundation.
