Learn how these major organizations are adopting individual and collective action to improve diagnostic safety.

Call for Abstracts Open

Submit an abstract for the Diagnostic Error in Medicine 10th International Conference. Submissions are due June 1, 2017.

Reducing Harm from Diagnostic Error

1 in 10 diagnoses are incorrect. Diagnostic error accounts for 40,000-80,000 US deaths annually—somewhere between breast cancer and diabetes. Chances are, we will all experience diagnostic error in our lifetime. (US Institute of Medicine 2015, BMJ Quality & Safety 25-Year Summary of US Malpractice Claims, 2013.)

If these numbers surprise you, then come join us in generating solutions that turn the numbers around.
