Diagnostic Errors in Primary Care Pediatrics: Project RedDE

This study examined the prevalence of three diagnostic errors or missed opportunities to diagnose in pediatric primary care practices (adolescent depression, elevated blood pressure, and sexually-transmitted infection lab results). They found that these errors were common. Providers did not follow up abnormal STI laboratory values for 11% of patients and did not address adolescent depression in 62% of visits. Providers did not document recognition of an elevated BP in 51% of patients with elevated BP
