AHRQ Patient Safety Network

AHRQ Patient Safety Network

AHRQ-Supported Conference on September 22–25 Will Explore Diagnostic Errors

Diagnostic errors—defined as missed, delayed or incorrect diagnoses—account for significant harm to patients but are underemphasized and understudied. The AHRQ-supported Diagnostic Error in Medicine (DEM) 6th International Conference, to be held September 22 to 25 in Chicago, will explore ways to define, measure and reduce diagnostic errors. The DEM Conference is dedicated solely to the problem of diagnostic error, bringing together stakeholders with a shared goal of improving patient safety.

• Brent James, M.D., Chief Quality Officer and Executive Director of the Institute for Health Care Delivery Research at Intermountain Healthcare, Salt Lake City
• Robert Wachter, M.D., Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, and editor of AHRQ’s Patient Safety Network and Web M&M
