Say Yes to the Less: Making it Easier to Choosing Wisely at SickKids

For February 2nd’s Webinar we were joined by Dr. Jeremy Friedman, Pediatrician-in-Chief at SickKids, Toronto. Dr. Friedman who addressed the importance of Choosing Wisely in pediatric practice, and discussed SickKids’ own Choosing Wisely ‘top 5’ list. SickKids, a tertiary care children’s hospital, is the first children’s hospital to develop and publish their own Choosing Wisely list. An analysis of progress and lessons learned over the first year was presented, specifically their success in reducing inappropriate overuse in the ED. Examples included nasopharyngeal testing for respiratory viruses, radiography for low risk acute ankle injuries, and more! Did you miss the webinar? Watch it here.
