    In teasing out differentiations for a taxonomy, would this group consider all diagnostic errors "clinical misdiagnosis" or should the second term be a child of the first one?

    Hi Lorri -  Your question reminded me of Gurpreet Dhaliwal's wonderful treatment of 'clinical diagnosis' - attached.  Seems like 'clinical misdiagnosis' should go in the same category as 'clinical misdiagnosis' – fuzzy terminology we should avoid.
