The goal is to raise awareness and encourage participation by medical librarians in diagnostic error (Dx) prevention and mitigation: http://www.mlanet.org/education/distance_ed/spring13/
- Explain what Dx error is, that it’s a subset of patient safety and an exceedingly critical problem
- Outline several roles, including collaborative roles, for librarians in Dx error prevention from solo to larger medical libraries
- Outline a range of activities for medical librarians to employ in their institutions to collaborate on Dx error awareness and reduction
- Reinforce the unique position of frontline librarians in their institutions to participate and collaborate with clinicians addressing Dx
