Homestead Hospital Conference Series: Don’t Believe Everything You Think
Awareness and understanding of medical errors have expanded rapidly during the past decade. The patient safety movement works to promote safer healthcare through system solutions; however, diagnostic errors have received relatively little attention. Diagnostic errors are estimated to occur in 10% to 15% of patient encounters. Cognitive errors contribute to over half of diagnostic errors and are associated with significant morbidity.
Join us to hear Dr. Abby Spencer describe key concepts in patient safety education and differentiate between systems errors and common cognitive errors.
Hospitalists, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Hematologists, House Physicians, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses and all other interested healthcare providers.
- Describe key concepts in patient safety education.
