This paper in BMJ Quality & Safety brings together the two trends of increasing focus on reducing diagnostic error, and involving patients in their care. The authors analyse strategies for patient involvement:
- in reducing diagnostic errors in an individual’s own care.
- in improving the healthcare delivery system’s diagnostic safety.
- in contributing to research and policy development on diagnosis-related issues.
