The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) held the European edition of its conference in Utrecht, the Netherlands, July 2-4, 2023. The theme of this year’s conference was “The Future of Diagnosis – Navigation in Uncertainty”. There were many presentations on the role of recent developments in artificial intelligence and its influence on the diagnostic process, patient involvement in diagnosis and their right to choose not to know parts of the diagnosis. The DID-ACT and iCoViP projects presented their findings on the design and evaluation of educational resources in the context of uncertainty in the clinical reasoning process.
Education in the handling of uncertainty, as addressed by the projects, will contribute to preparing health professionals to better deal with diagnostic challenges in the years to come.
