This eBook published by the National Academies for Science, Engineering and Medicine highlights that tackling diagnostic error in healthcare is a moral, professional, and public health duty. It makes recommendations to improve the safety of diagnostic processes, outlining the need for collaboration and a widespread commitment to change among healthcare professionals, healthcare organisations, patients and their families, researchers and policy makers.
