This is great. Congratulations on the grant. David Murray who serves on the HSQR study section with you has developed scenario-based modules (10 of them) for residents and has just published (in Simulation in Healthcare, June 2015) the results of his study (entitled Decision Making in Trauma Settings - Simulation to Improve Diagnostic Skills). Bottom-line preliminary results indicated that teams led by senior residents received higher scores when managing heuristic scenarios (Sys. 1) and they were less effective when managing scenarios requiring a more analytic approach (Sys. 1). There was an accompanying editorial (Decision Making and Cognitive Strategies) in the same issue by Marjorie Stiegler and David Gaba, calling for greater use of simulation-based research in understanding clinical decision-making. Thought you would like to know.

Subject: [IMPROVEDX] Doctors Company Foundation Grant - Great News
The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) is proud to announce today a new $200,000 grant from The Doctors Company Foundation (DCF), awarded to SIDM and our partner, Med-U to improve diagnosis by providing novel training modules on clinical reasoning.
These scenario-based modules represent the first formal educational products to specifically address diagnostic error in the US. By taking advantage of the stature and scope of the Med-U educational platform, we have the opportunity to reach a substantial portion of US medical trainees. Each module will be incorporated into the Med-U educational platform and used across the country for 3rd and 4th year medical students. The modules will introduce the cognitive biases that lead to errors in clinical reasoning, how to avoid these pitfalls, and how to recognize and discuss diagnostic errors encountered in everyday patient care, all with the goal of improving diagnosis in practice.
The project will be directed by Doctors Andrew Olsen, Gurpreet Dhaliwal, and Bob Trowbridge, in addition to members of the SIDM Education Committee, along with key staff from Med-U, including Doctors Leslie Fall and Valerie Lang, national experts on developing state-of-the-art teaching modules.
My thanks and appreciation to the project team - we are all looking forward to these first forays in developing the curriculum we need to improve diagnosis.
Mark L Graber, MD FACP
