Metacognition in Medicine. An Interdisciplinary Approach

Main Article Content

Gabriela Paula Florea

Abstract

The focus of this paper is on the multiple facets that metacognition can have in clinical medicine. Firstly, I present the philosophical perspective on metacognition and I outline the role metacognition can play for a patient’s biological response while facing a chronic illness. Secondly, I propose a model for physicians to use metacognition as a tool for how to store and retrieve medical information and for preventing burnout. The core argument for using metacognition as a tool, is to decrease the medical-care-crisis level that exists ever since the communication with the patient became less important because of hi-tech medical investigations.
