ACT for Better Diagnosis
Improving the Accuracy, Communication and Timeliness of diagnosis by identifying and spreading practical steps that everyone throughout the healthcare system can take.
Increase research on diagnosis and focus on diagnostic outcomes that matter to patients
Diagnosis and Telemedicine
The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the usage of telemedicine overnight, establishing it as a mainstay for healthcare delivery and diagnosis. To navigate this new era of “telediagnosis,” SIDM will convene a series of conversations about TeleDx research priorities.
The SIDM Journal Club sessions focus on a recent publication of interest in the diagnostic error field and provides an opportunity for the participants to engage in research-related interactive discussions.
Transform education of health professionals to improve diagnosis and develop new leaders in diagnostic quality and safety
Bringing together experts in education to develop consensus recommendations regarding diagnosis education.
Integrate patients and their families in all diagnostic improvement efforts
Addressing Disparities in Diagnosis
SIDM is partnering with Stanford University to conduct a two-year project to explore and address disparities in diagnosis related to cognitive reasoning pitfalls.
Patients Improving Research in Diagnosis
Through this program, SIDM and a team of research mentors worked with Patient Partners to refine their diagnostic error stories and cultivate skills to become full partners in research efforts to reduce the risk of diagnostic error that harms them.
