Clinical data collection is an essential professional skill. Medical students at the begining of their career are taught to follow a standardised routine for clinical data collection and this method aims at achieving "completeness" of clinical data ("Completeness" Driven Strategy). Research has shown that this routine is not followed in actual clinical practice and clinical data gathering is guided by initical practice and clinical data gathering is guided by initial diagnostic impressions (Relevance Driven Strategy). The two strategies of clinical data collection are described using a hypothetical patient and then compared and contrasted. Relevance Driven Strategy needs to be adopted for effective and efficient clinical data collection.
