AHRQ Issue Brief Calls on Healthcare Leaders To Drive Improvements in Diagnostic Safety
Leadership To Improve Diagnosis: A Call to Action, a new AHRQ issue brief, outlines strategies for healthcare leaders to drive improvements in diagnostic safety.
It is estimated that each year diagnostic errors can involve up to 12 million patients in U.S. ambulatory settings alone and contribute to the deaths of up to 80,000 patients in U.S. hospitals. The issue brief examines ways leaders can promote a shared sense of responsibility for diagnostic safety through role clarity, responsibility, and feedback mechanisms while using formal and informal learning strategies and processes to build capacity.
