Diagnostic Error in Medicine 7th International Conference

Thank You for Attending the Diagnostic Error in Medicine 7th International Conference

Diagnostic error is the leading cause of medical malpractice claims in the U.S. and is estimated to cause 40,000-80,000 deaths annually. One in every ten diagnoses is wrong, and one in every thousand ambulatory diagnostic encounters result in harm. The Diagnostic Error in Medicine 7th International Conference was focused on Merging Policy, Practice and Technology: Paths to Improve Diagnosis.

The overall objectives of the Conference included:
  • Recognizing the frequency, impact and public health significance of medical misdiagnosis.
  • Developing a community of advocates from across the healthcare delivery spectrum.
  • Identifying the causes of diagnostic error in medicine and strategies to reduce them.
  • Sharing research methods and results relevant to clinical reasoning, diagnostic error and misdiagnosis-related harm.
