SIDM wins NASA Grant

SIDM wins NASA Grant
January 25, 2016

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has awarded the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) a 1 year, exploratory grant to study whether education and training on cognitive errors could improve decision-making on future space missions.

Decision-making on space flights is currently optimized by taking advantage of input from crew-members and mission control staff, but on long-duration exploratory missions, such as the planned mission to Mars, astronauts will be more reliant on their own decision-making skills. The lessons learned from studying the cognitive shortcomings that underlie diagnostic errors are highly relevant to the problems NASA astronauts will be facing, because these errors are common to decision-making in all fields.

2016 SIDM Fellows

Posted By Cori Smith, Thursday, January 14, 2016

The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) is proud to introduce our three 2016 Fellows in Diagnostic Safety; Janice Kwan, MD MPH, Benji Mathews, MD and Ava Liberman, MD MA

 

Janice Kwan, MD MPH

Mentor: Mark Graber, MD

Dr Kwan is a graduate of the University of Toronto (MD), Harvard (MPH), and the VA Quality Scholar program (2013). She is currently Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto and staff physician at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto. Her fellowship work will be focused on two projects: 1) Identifying and analyzing cases of diagnostic error reported through the database maintained by the Canadian Medical Protective Association; and  2) Evaluating interventions to improve test result communication and management.

  

Benji Mathews, MD

Mentor: Karen Cosby, MD

Dr Mathews is a graduate of the University of Minnesota and is currently an Assistant Professor in their Department of Internal Medicine. He is certified by the American College of Chest Physicians in ultrasonography, and plans to evaluate the impact of this technology on diagnostic accuracy and efficiency.

 

Ava Liberman, MD MA

David Newman-Toker, MD PhD  

Dr Lieberman is a graduate of SUNY Downstate, has completed a Neurology residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and a Vascular Neurology fellowship at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. She is currently a StrokeNet Fellow at the NIH. Her project will focus on the misdiagnosis of stroke, aiming to develop an intervention that improves the timeliness and accuracy of stroke diagnosis in the ED.

 

About the Fellows in Diagnostic Safety Program

 

SIDM Fellows will work closely with Society mentors over the next year on projects focused on improving diagnosis or reducing diagnostic error. These fellows will also become members of the SIDM community and be funded to attend the Diagnostic Error in Medicine conference.
