Putting aside for a moment this question itself, I'm fascinated that this relatively simple question doesn't have a consensus. After decades of research and thousands and thousands of hours of cumulative clinical experience, the distinguished participants in this list appear all over the place. What a wonderful demonstration of the immense complexity of the field in which we practice. It's helped me feel just a bit less frustrated as I go through my day seeing patients, endlessly trying to make decisions, some of which may actually be quite important, without direction. It's nice to know I'm not alone.
