Call for Workshops: 14th Annual Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference

Workshops Submissions Are Now Closed

Join us for the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine's 14th International Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference (SIDM2021). This year's theme is: Reducing Disparities; Improving Diagnosis. In October, we will come together to showcase developments in the field of diagnostic quality and safety while exploring how disparities and inequalities contribute to misdiagnosis and diagnostic delays.

SIDM2021 brings together physicians, patients, nurses, other healthcare professionals, researchers, institutional leaders, policymakers, educators, students, and trainees to highlight and share recent innovations to improve the diagnostic process.

All accepted workshop presenters will be required to register for SIDM2021 and cover their own registration fees.
