• Healthcare triage: Bayes’ Theorem

    The wonkfest continues over at Healthcare Triage. This week, I discuss how we take sensitivity and specificity and apply them using Bayes’ Theorem:

    Last week we discussed test characteristics like sensitivity and specificity. This week, we’ll talk about how those concepts get used in actual medical decision making. At least, we’ll talk about how they’re supposed to be used. You’ll learn about Bayes’ Theorem, too! Don’t let the equations scare you. You’re going to learn a ton.

    I know this one may be a bit too wonky for some users, but I expect TIE readers to love it. Let me know what you think on Twitter!
