About the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine
The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) was founded with the goals of making diagnosis timely, accurate, cost-conscious, reliable and safe. The Diagnostic Error in Medicine meetings make up the primary forum for advancing this agenda by promoting discussion, highlighting research advances, and bringing together all of the stakeholders interested in this issue. The theme of this year’s meeting “What Can I Do?” emphasizes the diversity of this stakeholder group.
