The goal of this program is to raise awareness and encourage participation by medical librarians in diagnostic error (Dx) prevention and mitigation.

MLA's Partnering to Prevent Dx Webcast will:
-Explain what Dx error is, that it's a subset of patient safety and an exceedingly critical problem;
-Outline several roles, including collaborative roles, for librarians in Dx error prevention from solo to larger medical libraries;
-Outline a range of activities for medical librarians to employ in their institutions to collaborate on Dx error awareness and reduction; and
-Reinforce the unique position on frontline librarians in their institutions to participate and collaborate with clinicians addressing Dx.
