Hello. I am writing a critical reflection and I am struggling to find a source to back up what I am saying:
During a placement, I suspected an illness in a newborn but when I asked my mentor, she said it was not likely to be what I suspected. On reflection, I agreed with my mentor because she must be correct over a 2nd year student.

So, I am trying to find something about human behaviour on how we assume that someone qualified/experiened etc must be correct.

Anyone have any ideas for a reference? I am guessing this is a in psychology area

you need evidence for your reasonable suspicion. same as your mentor needs poof to discount it. being a student is not a reason.
look at hypothetico-dedudtive reasoning and heuretics in relation to formulating a working diagnosis/
