I plan to make the argument that we should use behavioral science principles when building quality improvement tools for physicians. I will discuss my research on the problem of trauma triage (an archetypal time-sensitive problem that occurs under conditions of uncertainty), with a brief digression to provide a primer on behavioral science, and sharing our efforts to use theoretically-based video games to recalibrate physician heuristics (intuitive judgments) in trauma.
