The Diagnostic Errors Interest Group aims to bring together clinicians, psychologists, informaticians, human factors specialists and epidemiologists with the aim of understanding the causes of diagnostic error and evaluating proposed solutions. Our emphasis is on robust, experimental methodologies for studying error causation and evaluating solutions. We concentrate on the clinician's decision-making processes, though acknowledge the influences that can be exerted by the environment (patient, devices, healthcare team, healthcare system). We aim to inform our members of the latest published research in the area, network with each other and foster research collaborations.


SMDM Committees and Interest Groups will be holding meetings during breakfast and lunch. Please see the schedule below. A mission statement or agenda for these groups may be found under each daily tab during the appropriate time slot.

All interested attendees are encouraged to join a committee or interest group during these times.   

Groups meeting during lunch, lunch is not provided. We ask that participants use the first 1/2 hour of the break to have their lunch for which the hotel offers many options, then join the group for the last hour of the break for discussions.
