From Errors to Solutions: Building a Research Agenda to Improve Diagnosis of Heart Disease in Women

On January 27, 2021, WomenHeart and the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine hosted a Convening on Missed and Delayed Diagnosis of Heart Disease in Women. The meeting brought together women with heart disease, clinicians, hospital personnel, advocates and researchers to develop ideas for patient-centered research focused on solutions. The result is a report that includes a list of diagnostic challenges and possible interventions reframed as research questions. The ideas presented in the report are intended to provide support for future research that will lead to more timely and accurate diagnosis of heart disease in women.

Contact afriedrich@womenheart.org if you would like more information on the convening or would like a low-res version of the final report.

This convening was funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (EACC-18922).
