    *Recorded in June 2020 - Summer Replay*

    In this episode Lisa and Sara talk to Dr Avril Danczak, a GP with an interest in managing uncertainty in medicine which led to her co-authoring the RCGP published book called Mapping Uncertainty in Medicine. We cover what uncertainty is, and why it is important to address this within medicine and general practice. We talk about ‘what to do when you don’t know what to do’, how to classify and identify different forms of uncertainty and then think about how you can go about addressing and managing this uncertainty in a structured way.
