Key Words Diagnostic accuracy; Diagnostic error; Misdiagnosis; Premature closure
Core Tip Approximately 85% of acute surgical patients can be diagnosed accurately along the diagnostic pathway. One of the strategies to reduce diagnostic error is to develop pathways for feedback. It is particularly important to develop feedback pathways for the junior doctors, as it has been shown that less experienced doctors tend to most over-estimate their diagnostic accuracy. With anonymity removed, the basic design of this study seems well suited to enable feedback to each physician involved in the care of an acute surgical patient.
