About this Core Competency
Learning Objectives

Following the acquisition of bedside information and the assessment of the likelihoods of time-sensitive conditions, emergency physicians need to decide on disposition, e.g., which further tests and treatments are in the patient's interest, and whether these tests and treatments can be delivered out-of-hospital or whether the patient requires hospital admission.

Emergency physicians should:
• Understand that these decisions are based not only on the likelihoods of conditions but also on the
risks and benefits of investigations and treatments for the individual patient
• Consider the patient's comorbidities, wishes, values, social circumstances, functional ability among others.
• Be aware of the limitations of their personal decision-making processes.
