An important report from AHRQ on Patient Safety in Ambulatory Care <http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK396055/> was just released.  The report identifies diagnostic error as a major patient safety issue in ambulatory care, but failed to identify a single intervention study to address the problem.  The study will serve as a guide for AHRQ in terms of defining research gaps and the need for additional research going forward. 

Congratulations to the many SIDM members and friends who contributed to authoring the report (Kathy McDonald, Kaveh Shojania, Urmimala Sarkar, Bob Wachter, Lorri Zipperer, Paul Shekelle).
