Subject: [IMPROVEDX] Looking for references on patient harm from common tests and treatments

Hi,


I have a resident interested in a developing a talk for us on harms associated with common diagnostics and therapeutics, like antibiotics, narcotics, and CT imaging. This can be independent of but can relate to errors in over-diagnosis.


Does anyone have any references they would recommend for creating such a talk? For any copyrighted material, I can just take the information and take care of obtaining the article.


Thank you,

David
