When Doctors Don't Listen is a recently published book written by two emergency medicine doctors from Harvard University, USA. Their objective: to improve emergency department diagnostic accuracy while minimising unnecessary (and expensive) testing. There is a surprising catch - the book is aimed primarily at the patient rather than the doctor. That said, clinicians will still find this a fascinating read.
