A place to start is "Prospect Theory" (Tversky and Kahneman) which developed the evidence for how humans make judgments under uncertainty, medical (including in the EBM framework) or otherwise. There is a large body of work on this, outside traditional medical sources but on rare occasions therein, citing it. It all has to do with "the metastatic mythology of risk".

I'm interested in exploring uncertainty in EBM - how it arises (different
causes) and what doctors and their patients do when there is no evidence.
