International Clinical Librarian Conference

I recently attended the 9th International Clinical Librarian Conference (ICLC) in Leicester, England where I heard some interesting presentations and presented my paper Reducing diagnostic error by using DDx support on patient rounds. In my talk I described how diagnostic error is one of the most important safety problems in healthcare today. I also explained how differential diagnosis (DDx) generators have the potential to reduce error by augmenting and influencing the diagnostic reasoning process of clinicians, and that clinical librarians and informationists can increase awareness of DDx generators and help clinicians utilize them to improve the quality of their diagnoses.
