Diagnosis as a Team Sport Webinar

When: Wednesday, March 1, from 1 to 2 p.m.

Presenter: David Newman-Toker, M.D., Ph.D., director, Armstrong Institute Center for Diagnostic Excellence

Summary: Physicians are tasked with identifying the patient’s medical condition, but they are not the only ones who can ensure a correct diagnosis. Nurses, physical therapists, physician assistants and family members can also help prevent incorrect or missed diagnoses. In a one-hour webinar, Dr. Newman-Toker will discuss:

  • The benefits of teamwork in diagnosis
  • How to involve nurses and allied health professionals as critical members of the diagnostic team
  • Ways to engage patients so that they contribute to accurate diagnoses
  • Legal, cultural and logistical barriers to diagnostic teamwork

The webinar will begin with a presentation of about 40 minutes, to be followed by Q&A. Click here for more information and to register.
