Improving Diagnosis Change Package
The Improving Diagnosis in Medicine change package is a tool to help reduce patient safety incidents caused by actions during the diagnostic process. Developed through clinical practice sharing, organization input, and contributions from subject matter experts, patients, and families, it is designed to help users identify the circumstances under which diagnostic errors can occur and engage all team members, especially patients and families.
Cases to Improve Diagnosis
These learning cases are for practicing physicians, developed by the American College of Physicians in collaboration with SIDM, encouraging them to think around diagnostic decision-making, how diagnostic errors may affect both patients and physicians in their daily practice of medicine, and how errors can be mitigated by physicians.
Case-Based Virtual Learning Course
Aquifer and SIDM have developed a free virtual patient course that contains foundational content about diagnosis, including factors that contribute to error and strategies that can be used to avoid error. The course introduces students to the cognitive processes and system-related issues that can lead to errors.
