Overconfidence - most dangerous quality of a HealthCare Provider

Overconfidence is the most dangerous quality in a Health Care Professional. Try to avoid this quality and also try to avoid colleagues who demonstrate this quality.

Without confidence, it is virtually impossible to treat a patient successfully. It's a must quality for a good clinician, but an even more essential quality is to avoid overconfidence. An overconfident Healthcare Professional can do more harm to the patient than benefit. Learn to know your limitations, learn to accept the limitations and if you cannot improve on those aspects, learn to say "I don't know".
