Choosing Wisely Canada is the national voice for reducing unnecessary tests and treatments in health care.
Using Health Care Resources Wisely in the COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed enormous pressures on the capacity of health care systems and providers to continue to deliver care. In these challenging times, stewardship of limited resources is critical.
Choosing Wisely Canada has developed tools and resources that can help support efforts to use health care resources wisely given the urgent care needs and constraints related to COVID-19.
In December’s Choosing Wisely Talks, we’ll discuss communication approaches, tools, and strategies to address complicated practice issues related to medico-legal concerns. Integrating Choosing Wisely into clinical practice can be protective to practice and ensure quality and patient safety. Dr. Lisa Calder, CEO of the Canadian Medical Protective Association and Dr. Peter Kuling, Family Physician based in Ottawa, lead the conversation on December 2 at 12 p.m. ET.
