Congratulations and thanks to Saqib Walayat, Ben Pflederer and colleagues for publishing results from their "Diagnostic Reboot" project. This project focused on medical house staff – if one of their Inpatients did not have a clear diagnosis at 24 hours, the team re-evaluated their clinical reasoning using the DxR tool. Interesting results – lots of new diagnoses ! – and an excellent example of improving both education and diagnostic outcomes in the real world.
This project was one of 18 sponsored by SIDM with funding from the Macy Foundation as part of efforts to improve diagnosis education across the health professions. You can read more about the education projects here.
