From the Field: New Issue of Diagnosis
The September issue of Diagnosis, the official peer-reviewed journal of the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine, includes two studies and an editorial by Pat Croskerry about cognition in medical decision making.
The issue also offers “Beyond Dr. Google,” a review of the current evidence base for direct-to consumer, interactive diagnostic apps, including symptom checkers and sensor-based apps that apply algorithms to digital photographs. Some of the other topics covered in the issue include a policy brief about education in healthcare professions, quality assessment of medical laboratory performance in detecting antimicrobial resistance, and startegies to use when facing a “diagnostic dilemma.”
Free access to each full issue of Diagnosis is a benefit of membership in the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine.
