I recently gave 45 minutes  Grand Rounds lecture for the Departments of
Medicine in Louisiana State University about medical errors I personally
experienced as a patient with cancer. I also discuss their prevention and
importance of patient advocacy. I hope that you will find it interesting.

Subject: Washington Post Article - May 3rd:  Misdiagnosis is more common than drug errors or wrong-site surgery
 


Washington Post Article: Misdiagnosis is more common than drug errors or wrong-site surgery. 
The article by Sandra Boodman of the Washington Post discusses Rory Staunton, Itzhak Brook and doctors helping organize the DEM conference and working to improve diagnoses in medicine like David Newman-Toker and Mark Graber.
I found this article incredibly beneficial and would now ask everyone I know to ask about a differential diagnosis. I would now push anyone to ask “please help me understand/list what else this could be.”  
Thanks.  Karen Holliman
