“Many decisions that physicians make are dependent upon multiple factors in individual patients. The importance of acting, sometimes aggressively, can be crucial in affecting a patient’s outcome. By contrast, some situations are better managed by refraining to act, temporarily or permanently. These decisions require judgment, which comes from knowledge and experience. Because medicine is an uncertain art and full of complexities, quandaries abound. Thus, when to act and when to refrain are key aspects of doctors’ careers.”
