It's a narrative review and state-of-the-union summation of what is known
about diagnostic error, what interventions are likely to improve it. The
authors conclude with a recommendation for the World Health Organization to
take a leading role in "bringing together primary care leaders, practicing
frontline clinicians, safety experts, policymakers, the health IT community,
medical education and accreditation organizations, researchers from multiple
disciplines, patient advocates, and funding bodies among others, to address
the many common challenges and opportunities to reduce diagnostic error.
take a leadership role."
