The Reducing Diagnostic Errors in Primary Care Pediatrics (Project RedDE!) Toolkit aims to assist primary care practice teams with a systematic approach to reduce diagnostic errors and improve care for children. This toolkit will walk teams through the measurement, screening, recognition, diagnosis, follow-up, and reduction of diagnostic errors associated with pediatric elevated blood pressure, adolescent depression and laboratory testing through improvement science methods. Funding for the Project RedDE! and this toolkit has been provided by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
This toolkit is based on clinical evidence, best practices, and is a compilation of resources from Project RedDE! which involved over a hundred primary care physicians and their care teams working across the United States to improve care for children. By using this toolkit, primary care providers will be able to:
Learn how to implement a systematic approach to providing safe and quality care to your patients
Test strategies for improving care
Access tools and best practice from national experts
Reduce the likelihood of patient harm by identifying and decreasing diagnostic errors
