Implementation at North York General Hospital

North York General Hospital’s VP, Medical and Academic Affairs, and Director, Strategy and Diagnostics, describe their approach to implementation of the Choosing Wisely Canada recommendations and patient and family engagement.

Introducing the Early Adopters Collaborative

With 102 physician recommendations and 25 patient education pamphlets released to date, our focus is beginning to shift to implementation. In an effort to bring together health care delivery systems from across the country who have initiated grassroots projects focused on implementing the physician recommendations, we have introduced the Early Adopters Collaborative.

61 new recommendations

In case you missed it, a second Wave of Choosing Wisely Canada launched successfully on October 29, 2014, with the release of 61 new physician recommendations and 15 new patient pamphlets.
