An algorithm that perhaps all doctors ought to consider

Dear colleagues,

The Historian and philosopher Yuval Noah Harari asserts that algorithms are essential to decision making.

Here is an algorithm that perhaps all doctors ought to consider:

  1. We became doctors primarily to help patients.
  2. We consider all patients, and indeed, all human beings, to be equal.
  3. We prioritise our resources to patients most in need.
  4. This should apply to patients no matter where they are in the world.

By supporting the Twice the Doctor foundation you are doing more than merely paying lip service to this compelling algorithm.

Please consider sending this algorithm to any of your medical colleagues.

Regards to all
