The Big Bang Theory Comedy Show, Satisfice and Infection Prevention

Professor and Nobel Laureate Herbert Simon's satisfice concept has hit pop culture. 

This season's Big Bang Theory episode titled Decision Reverberation explored satisfice, or opting for a solution that is both satisfactory and sufficient. A summary of the episode can be found here.

Those who know me well are well aware of my near obsession for satisfice in infection prevention, as explored here.

Satisfice, a portmanteau for all things reasonable and pragmatic.
