To examine the current state of the science and research opportunities for improving diagnosis in older adults within the U.S. health care system, the Board on Health Care Services of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a hybrid workshop on July 21, 2022. The workshop highlighted unique challenges faced in achieving diagnostic excellence for older adults, opportunities and obstacles to improving diagnosis, and strategies and interventions to promote diagnostic excellence across the care continuum. This workshop was the fifth in a series on diagnostic excellence funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, with additional funding provided for this specific workshop by The John A. Hartford Foundation. This Proceedings of a Workshop-in Brief highlights the presentations and discussions that occurred at the workshop.
