Mark, All- this may have been aired in prior discussion, but not to be
missed:

‘Moneyball’ Author Michael Lewis on Errors and Medical Misdiagnosis

As to your elucidation of Nursing as intergral to the diagnostic team,
Interprofessional Team(IPT) education as part of the noveau curriculum in
medical education should emphasize "diagnosis delivery" as equitably as
health care delivery. Indeed, diagnostic delivery may begin at point of
entry or in the continuum(all where nursing resides) by anyone on the team.
