1st Australasian Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference
Local and world leaders in medical diagnosis will meet in Melbourne in May to explore ways to improve diagnosis and patient safety.
The theme of the 1st Australasian Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference is “teamwork and collaboration for safer diagnosis”, so it will bring together GPs, radiologists, pathologists, emergency department physicians and trainees, as well as nurses and other allied health workers.
Joined by leaders in diagnostic error, the safety sciences, health IT, medical indemnity providers, clinicians, cognitive psychologists, and advocates for patients, the attendees share a passion for making diagnosis more accurate, timely, and safe.
The language of diagnosis will be explored and the contribution that medical culture makes to diagnostic error, both positive and negative, will be examined.
The Conference is being held on 24-25 May (just before the AMA National Conference 2017 on 26-28 May, also in Melbourne) and more information can be found at https://improvediagnosis.site-ym.com/page/AusDEM17
