Medical error (ME) is a major global problem that can compromise patient safety and place an unnecessary burden on health resources. Despite a growing body of evidence affirming the effect of emotion on cognition, investigation of this phenomenon has been largely ignored in the emotionally charged environments that can be characteristic of medical contexts. Research will be undertaken to investigate the effects of emotion on clinical information processing and clinical decision making with the aim of better understanding this effect and calibrating an empirically-sound test procedure that will aid further investigations.
