Uncertainty

Uncertainty is defined as the “subjective perception of ignorance,” or simply put, “we know that we don’t know.” It is a constant in both science and medicine, and there are many aspects to its definition in the sphere of healthcare. For example, a provider could be uncertain about a difficult diagnosis, the effectiveness of a treatment for a specific case, or long-term patient outcomes.

Despite advances in medicine, uncertainty cannot be completely eliminated, and thus stakeholders in healthcare must find ways to cope with uncertainty.
