Diagnostic errors are a top concern in the patient safety field. Studies have shown that malpractice claims related to diagnostic errors outnumber all other classes of medical error. Healthcare organizations need a more systematic approach for identifying diagnostic errors and educating clinicians on strategies for reducing the prevalence of these errors.
This resource-rich module provides a diverse set of tools and resources to educate healthcare professionals on diagnostic errors, including basic principles, common theories, and key strategies for reducing these errors at both the individual practice and system levels. In addition, the module provides a dedicated set of materials specific to engaging patients and families in the prevention of diagnostic errors.
Upon completion of this module, users will be able to:
- Describe three ways in which intuitive thought differs from rational deliberation during clinical reasoning
- Identify at least four factors contributing to diagnostic error
- Name, at a minimum, two ways in which the patient can impact the prevalence of diagnostic errors
