- The casablanca strategy is a form of diagnostic workup that is temporizing, where common suspects are rounded up in a panel of tests. It is commonly used to “buy time” but should not be considered as the only mode of workup.
- One can think of illness scripts as an organization of knowledge on disease entities. A rounded illness script should include enabling conditions, the fault, and the consequences +/- management and prognosis.
- Framing the case with the appropriate enabling conditions help retrieve appropriate illness scripts and arrive at the correct diagnosis
