Aims and Scope

Our new journal Diagnosis globally welcomes all researchers and authors interested in how diagnosis determines the quality of medical care.  We focus on how diagnosis can be advanced, how it is taught, and how and why it can fail, leading to diagnostic errors.  

Diagnosis provides a platform to authors and readers interested in improving diagnostic quality to exchange important recent research and ideas. The Journal welcomes both fundamental and applied work, as well as improvement initiatives, opinions and debates to encourage new thinking on improving this critical aspect of healthcare quality.  Diagnosis addresses academics, physicians, educators, healthcare managers and leaders, patients, the diagnostic industry, as well as policy makers with a mix of cutting-edge and authoritative contributions, and combines the academic and clinical aspects of quality and safety in healthcare.

Diagnosis covers in detail:

• Factors that promote diagnostic quality and safety;  Clinical reasoning

• Diagnostic errors in medicine: what is known and what is unknown

• The factors that contribute to diagnostic error:  human factors, cognitive issues, and system-related breakdowns

• Improving the value of diagnosis – eliminating waste and unnecessary testing

• How culture and removing blame promote awareness of diagnostic errors

• Training and education related to clinical reasoning and diagnostic skills

• Advances in laboratory testing and imagine that improve diagnostic capability

• Local, national and international initiatives to reduce diagnostic error
