Register!- MAPS PSO Diagnostic Error Webinar

We are encouraging that you gather your teams in conference rooms to take advantage of this opportunity to identify diagnostic errors and collaborate on identifying missed opportunities. Participate in a dynamic webinar discussion surrounding diagnostic errors. The impact from the delay or failure to treat a condition when the working diagnosis was wrong or unknown can result in tragic outcomes for the patient.
