Tell Your Story
Patient stories illustrate the scope and importance of addressing diagnostic error. By sharing your story, you help ensure the voices of patients and their families are heard in diagnostic improvement efforts.
The Patient's Toolkit for Diagnosis is a resource created for patients, by patients. With this toolkit, patients can prepare for upcoming appointments, map symptoms, account for medications, and plan for next steps.
Learn the important questions and answers when it comes to diagnostic error, including causes, most commonly misdiagnosed diseases, and what you can do to reduce your chances of receiving a misdiagnosis.
