re: survey of docs about mis-Dx.   As the only sociologist and professor 
of survey research methods, I must tell you that's not a great idea. 
Many docs don't find out about their bad calls....ever.  And certainly 
few get that feedback with anything approximating systematic rigor.  
Also, although the mis-Dx should be great lessons, they may not be the 
ones folk wish to remember most clearly.
