Title: Information need in medical diagnosis: Urgency, etiology, and information-seeking questions

Abstract: This experiment investigated the relationship between problem attributes and the information needed to make a preliminary diagnosis. The urgency and amount of etiologic information was varied in a factorial, repeated measures design using four clinical vignettes. Fifty residents from the Internal Medicine and Family Practice residency programs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison participated in this study. Information seeking questions--in the form of the Most Important Thing a resident might need to know--were categorized by semantic function, and analyzed using non-parametric statistical methods. Canonical correlations were used to investigate relationships between demographic variables and information seeking questions.

The data supported the hypothesis that significantly more Quantitative questions would be asked under Urgency conditions. In addition, significant correlations between information seeking questions and gender, residency program, and medical school attended suggested possible avenues for research in this area.
