Abstract

The main tasks of the clinician (diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and ongoing monitoring) are not distinct entities. For example, one possible test for a diagnosis is to make a presumptive diagnosis of a disease, treat for that disease, and monitor to see whether the patient is cured. Conceptually, however, it is useful to consider diagnosis as a distinct element of patient management upon which the success of the others depends.
