Published by DeGruyter, DIAGNOSIS examines the question of how diagnosis determines the quality of medical care. It focuses on how diagnosis can be advanced, how it is taught, and how and why it can fail, leading to diagnostic errors.

ImproveDx highlights organizations working to improve diagnosis and discussions about current research and policy developments, and offers articles that focus in depth on central issues in the field of diagnostic safety.
Listserv participants – physicians, researchers, patients, patient advocates, and healthcare providers – are part of an ongoing and robust email discussion, interaction and professional collaboration on topics relevant to diagnostic error in medicine.
