The Misdiagnosis of Cerebrovascular Disease in Emergent Headache Evaluations

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Failure to accurately diagnose acute cerebrovascular disease can result in significant patient morbidity and mortality. Headache is one of the most common complaints reported among misdiagnosed stroke patients, but rates of headache-specific misdiagnosis are not known. We propose to quantify misdiagnosis of cerebrovascular disease at index emergency visit among headache patients and identify factors associated with misdiagnosis to facilitate the development of novel clinical tools to reduce diagnostic error.
