Despite the growing interest and rapid pace of recent achievements, not much is known with a high degree of confidence about the strategies and interventions that might reduce diagnostic failures and patient harms or enhance the resilience and safety of diagnostic work. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications from research institutions and their investigators to conduct Health Services Research Demonstration and Dissemination Projects (R18) to evaluate strategies and interventions for reducing diagnostic failures and patient harms, including approaches that enable organizations, providers and patients to better anticipate emerging diagnostic risk before failure and harm occurs.
