Tools & Toolkits
Access tools aimed at providing patients, clinical teams, and educators with information and resources to improve diagnostic quality and safety.
Education on diagnostic reasoning requires collaboration, teamwork, and measurement. The guide describes how to implement a diagnostic reasoning quality improvement intervention that is scalable and can be implemented in any healthcare system.
Every member of the clinical team, including patients and family, has a role to play in ensuring that diagnoses are accurate, timely and communicated to the patient. The Diagnostic Process Map is a resource developed by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (National Academies) and offered by SIDM to help everyone understand and work to improve the diagnostic process.
SIDM has released two guides for hospitals and health systems in reducing harm from diagnostic errors. Each guide leverages the lived-experience, insights and expertise of PFACs to help drive change to improve diagnostic quality and safety.
