Diagnostic errors account for up to 70% of medical errors. Prevention of diagnostic errors is more complex than building safety checks into health care systems; it requires an understanding of critica...
Cognitive errors are a major contributor to medical error. Traditionally, medical errors at teaching hospitals are analyzed in morbidity and mortality (M&M) conferences. We aimed to describe the frequ...
Background Medical error is a leading cause of death nationwide. While systems issues have been closely investigated as a contributor to error, little is known about the cognitive factors that contrib...
Background Heuristics and cognitive biases are thought to play an important role in diagnostic medical error. How to systematically determine and capture these kinds of errors remains unclear. Morbidi...
Diagnostic error research has largely focused on individual clinicians' decision making and system design, while overlooking information from patients. We analyzed a unique new data source of patient-...
Diagnostic errors have been reported frequently in patient with pulmonary embolism since symptoms are not specific. However, there is only scarce evidence that the delay associated with di...
In this study, Investigators are going to develop and test a device to apply virtual reality simulation to improve and help for teaching and assessment of anesthesia crisis management.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of the virtual reality based neurologic examination teaching tool(VRNET) for medical students. VRNET is a new teaching tool for neurolog...
This study will verify if a comprehensive laparoscopic curriculum using virtual reality demonstrates skills transfer to the operating room, compared to the traditional teaching method.
This is a multi-site, cluster-randomized controlled trial to test the effectiveness of patient photographs displayed in electronic health record (EHR) systems to prevent wrong-patient orde...
Errors or mistakes committed by health professionals which result in harm to the patient. They include errors in diagnosis (DIAGNOSTIC ERRORS), errors in the administration of drugs and other medications (MEDICATION ERRORS), errors in the performance of surgical procedures, in the use of other types of therapy, in the use of equipment, and in the interpretation of laboratory findings. Medical errors are differentiated from MALPRACTICE in that the former are regarded as honest mistakes or accidents while the latter is the result of negligence, reprehensible ignorance, or criminal intent.
A measure of PATIENT SAFETY considering errors or mistakes which result in harm to the patient. They include errors in the administration of drugs and other medications (MEDICATION ERRORS), errors in the performance of procedures or the use of other types of therapy, in the use of equipment, and in the interpretation of laboratory findings and preventable accidents involving patients.
Systematic discussions and teaching relating to patient care.
Incorrect diagnoses after clinical examination or technical diagnostic procedures.
Treatment technique in a virtual environment which allows the participant to experience a sense of presence in an immersive, computer-generated, three-dimensional, interactive environment that minimizes avoidance behavior and facilitates emotional involvement.
