Policy & Practice Interactive Webinar

The Challenge of Improving Diagnostic Competence

Monday, April 24, 2017 2:00 pm-3:00 pm (CT)

Diagnostic competence is an emerging public policy issue. In a keynote presentation at the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine’s 9th International Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference, ABMS Board Member Catherine Lucey, MD, referred to clinical reasoning as medical education’s unmet challenge, calling for better strategies and systems to teach and support clinical reasoning throughout training and practice. Clinical reasoning, Dr. Lucey noted, is a skill that can be learned and must be maintained.

On April 24 Dr. Lucey will reprise her remarks in an interactive webinar and explore ways Maintenance of Certification can support improvement in diagnosis. Please join us!
