Diagnosis as a Team Sport


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 recorded webinar, Dr. David Newman-Toker discusses the benefits of diagnostic teamwork, how to involve other health care professionals and patients as critical members of the diagnostic team, and the barriers to diagnostic teamwork.
