I think the base problem is "diagnostic error" is a user-defined term.
*Is a referral for a diagnosis which the referring could have made an
error? It consumes resources and does not benefit the patient.
*Is a diagnosis of PE for a subsegmental incidental finding on CTA a
diagnostic error?
*Is not performing the CTA to diagnose an incidental or even significant
but unrelated finding an error (say you're doing a PE workup and find a
mass which is not causing symptoms?)
*Is giving a patient a Z-Pak and steroids for a cold an error?
*Is inter-practitioner variation in obtaining CT of 8 - 34% of patients
with equivalent outcomes an error?
I think the first thing to do is strictly define the term.
That is very hard work and a task which this group is admirably suited to
undertake.
