Doctors Make Mistakes. A New Documentary Explores What Happens When They Do —and How to Fix It
People accept it as fact: that to err is human. Every misstep is an opportunity to learn and improve. But when the mistakes are made by doctors, lives can be compromised, or even lost. Among malpractice claims, about 30% are due to diagnostic errors, according to a report by Coverys, a malpractice services provider. In the U.S. in 2017, surgeons either operated on the wrong patient, the wrong site or performed the wrong procedure 95 times, according to the Joint Commission, which accredits and certifies many healthcare systems in the country. To Err is Human, a new documentary from 3759 Films and Tall Tale Productions that...

In my position as CEO of a firm employing over 80,000 engineers, I can testify that most were excellent engineers.

Researchers Take on a New Role: Advocate for Profession, Science
Scientists pride themselves on being objective purveyors of information. For some, this may seem at odds with delving into the world of public policy, where politics and spin seemingly reign supreme. For others, advocating on behalf of their profession and speaking up about the importance of science is model behavior for researchers. "Collaboration between our leading experts in science and technology and Congress and federal agencies is the only way that public policy decisions will be made using sound science," said Senator Jay Rockefeller (D–WV), chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, an...
