But, but, but....

Most errors are unknown and very hard to discover.  Many errors are never discovered....ever.

While I love the design.... the limitations must be acknowledged!

Good news.

Well done Mark and team.

Jimn, I agree that most errors are ridiculous mistakes and many very simple and not complex. I may be wrong but I think that the serious problems of of the Swiss Cheese phenomena (multiple errors that compound the original problem) could be stopped/helped if the simple things were corrected and less frequent.

I would love to see a study, in about 30 - 50 Doctor’s private offices, where there was a 3 month collection run-in period where all the errors that occur are recorded, following interviews with all members of staff (things like no patient call backs for lab and procedures undertaken, switched EKG leads, wrong or delayed diagnoses, forgotten day-before appointment calls, medication refills not called into the pharmacy, etc.). Then randomly give differing instructions to two or three groups of the offices (perhaps different kinds of check lists used at different times) and then seeing what happens to the error rates.

Would welcome thoughts on a better structure for such a study to help ensure a better and acceptable outcome.

Would litigation issues prevent such a study from ever being undertaken?

Once the private offices are "sorted out," then we could better move to medical education and the hospitals!! Or perhaps do them all at once? Would understanding the simple things better would provide a better foundation for other initiatives?

Rob Bell, M.D.

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
President, SIDM
