Save the Date: The Diagnostic Error in Medicine 8th International Conference

Mark your calendar to attend the Diagnostic Error in Medicine 8th International Conference on
27-29 September 2015 at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center just outside Washington, D.C. Our theme this year is After the IOM Report: What's Next?
In 2015, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) will release a report on diagnostic error as a quality of care challenge. The report will examine current definitions of diagnostic error, the epidemiology, burden of harm, costs associated with diagnostic error, and efforts to improve diagnosis. We anticipate release of the report prior to the conference, but regardless, the meeting will ensure a timely discourse on the subject by featuring experts who presented to the committee as well as members of the committee. We will also begin to focus on what we each can do to drive improvements in diagnostic performance whether in the practice of medicine, the preparation of physicians, research, policy or the role of the patient.
