Abstract

The present study analyzes the level of awareness and the meta-cognitive beliefs of doctors when making decisions at work. To this purpose, some emergency department doctors, surgeons and internists were given the Solomon questionnaire in order to examine their level of awareness and their meta-cognitive beliefs inolved in the decision-making process. The results show that meta-cognitive abilities highly differ in the three medical sectors considered.
